The comments of those at the bottom of this article is the typical liberal view point of those who do not have a clue of the world we live in today. The are living in a fantasy world! In this day and time and the days coming, officers will be walking the halls with rifles like they do in Israel. Lets get over the sensitivity of the wimpy society we live in. Safety of our children and others is necessary at this point! If a shooter comes in with firepower which by the way, no gun laws will prevent that. Because they will find other means some of which more devastating than any gun! As the kid that had the bombs ready to go bomb his school two weeks ago. (By the way the liberal news media did not report because it would deflect the main focus off of or guns and the attack on the Second Amendment!) He was going to carry it out until some kid heard about it and advised officials. They found he in fact had them and they were totally operational and not just that of words, then arrested him. We must defend our people and young students from people like these mentally deranged people and worse possible terrorists with a cause. The only way to do it unfortunately in the day we live is armed security. Quite frankly, I have feared the day for the past two years when al qaeda or other terrorist group walks into our schools. Can you imagine the school being totally unprotected should this happen. Locked doors, security cameras will not be in the least effective. I am surprised they already have not done this due to the impact it would have! They already have "Now Seen" by the Connecticut elementary school (as a test) the impact it had on America. Generating anger, fear, disruption of normal life, disruption of the educational program and long lasting effects on all of us mentally for the rest of our life not to mention the victims and families God Bless them. God forbid, this ever happen but it you must admit unfortunately it is very possible and presently we are not prepared to defend or even buy time. So the weak dreamers of an Utopian liberal society better wake up a see reality. Armed guards in our schools and other facilities is the necessary and protective measure. At least an armed security officer or two could hold of and protect children, student and people until the reinforcements (Law Enforcement Units) could respond. The doors were locked at Sandy Hook also but the killer just broke in to the school and started shooting at totally vulnerable unprotected students and teacher! So secured schools is not a viable answer! It is armed teacher or security or both. Obviously training programs would be stringent and required. I heard the Chief say the rifles are in the trunk of the vehicle. If the officers are not in their car and considering these catastrophic events could last only 10-15 minutes that is not really that effective. But better than what most schools have! At least they are armed with their handguns!
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
“Americans have the right and advantage of being armed. Unlike the people of other countries, whose leaders are afraid to trust them with arms.”
James Madison. Author of the 2nd Amendment
