This could include all schools if the parents step up and help keep the schools safe. We have Neighborhood Watch all over the US so why not have a school watch program there are enough Parents in the schools to watch it for a few minutes or hours a day.

An assistant principal with a pistol saved lives at the school shooting in Pearl, Ms. There should be trained, armed people at every school, whether they be teachers, principals or security. Gun free zones don't mean a thing to psychopaths.

Murderers will kill without guns. Look at how many people were killed by McVey. He didn't use any guns and there were armed security present in the building.

In a state where teachers are being laid off, class sizes are huge and no real budget to pay for our existing educational needs, how is this going to get paid for? Nice in theory, but how will this solve random acts of violence against all innocents.

While armed guards would be good, the real solution is to have teachers IN THE CLASSROOM trained and armed - that way every room is "covered." A few armed guards outside or "roaming" would not have as much effect. However the armed guards could guard against ENTRY into the building.
