Copy of missive sent....

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After watching devastation of communities and lives in my lifetime by deranged madmen with guns in “gun free zones”. Columbine (during the last failed Assault weapons ban) Virginia Tech, Aurora and most recently, Sandy Hook Elementary. As a father of school aged children, my heart bleeds for the families of the children and school staff killed in this latest tragedy and the community of Newtown.

I feel we all know that something MUST be done to better protect our most precious resource. Recently Mr. Lapeirre of the NRA suggested armed security at schools. Where this is a good beginning, I don’t think it goes far enough. To this end I will outline my, I am sure controversial, plan.

My plan is to allow any and all teachers, administrators or other staff to arm themselves.

1st only those staff that CHOOSE and volunteer to be armed will be.

2nd We pay for those that so choose to take part in this program to take intensive defensive shooting classes and crisis remediation classes.

3rd we pay those willing to be armed a small stipend on each paycheck for the “inconvenience of carrying a firearm”

4th we make sure those that are armed will have their firearms loaded with “frangible” bullets.

5th all firearms MUST be concealed at all times.

6th ONLY the “trained professional armed security” or director of the schools security program know who are the staff so armed.

7th signs posted at all entrances to school and school grounds that staff are armed and trained to repel, with deadly force, any and all who threaten the staff or students.

What this does is put doubt into the minds of any that would perpetuate violence upon our children or schools. No “unbalanced” student or other person(s) could “case” the school beforehand and target the too few armed security professional (s) at the beginning of the assault. Then leaving them free to reign terror and death upon the occupants of our schools.

This allows our teachers and staff to INSTANTLY respond, with deadly force if needed, to any and all threats to our precious children.

In the Sandy Hook tragedy, the principle and teachers stood with empty hands against a madman wielding firearms to save their precious charges, their pupils. THIS is a travesty that we do not allow our teachers to effectively protect our children as well as teach them.

I'm sold on all those ideas. I'm sure you know how some will receive it though. Clearly, gun free zones don't work.

Have someone better than you and I edit for grammer and spelling. After that, let it plant the seeds of sanity in a crazy world.

Good job FMJ

I would also potentially add that Front Sight Firearms Training Institute is offering free training to teachers.

All sounds OK. The only problem with that the shooter will go somewhere else and find a easy target. They might be crazy that doesn't mean they are stupid.

You're absolutely right, but at least using our children as targets will be off the table! If we don't stop this now, the next madmen will only try to one-up each other.

This is a problem for you ???? OMG
I can never read your post in the same light I had before your comment that it would be a problem if the mad psyco killer goes somewhere else besides schools. SMH

As i said don't assume they are stupid. School isn't the only place children gather. School buses--cinemas--school trips--school camps-- they will wait to there ate no adults armed or otherwise before acting.

So its OK if they shoot children somewhere else as long as its not in school. You are kidding yourself if you think turning schools into fortress that the shooter won't find children somewhere else if that's what he is after.

There was a similar incident in the UK 30 years ago. Security wasn't changed in UK schools. Thankfully nothing similar has happened again. There is no security in UK schools the doors are open and anyone can walk in.



Why do you think that's the case in the UK. In America attacks in schools are frequent and people are talking about turning schools into fortress.

Noted, I believe that is why some are calling for the outlawing of GFZ's! Either way we cannot guard our kids 24/7, but at least we would be taking away one avenue for these psychos.
