We need more guns in schools!

Seemed like a good idea at the time.

A prosecutor in Lapeer, Michigan says, "No harm, no foul," after a charter school took the National Rifle Association�s (NRA) advice and hired a armed security guard who promptly left his handgun unattended in a student bathroom.

Chatfield School co-directors Matt Young and Bill Kraly announced last week that they had hired retired Lapeer County Sheriff�s Dept. firearms instructor Clark Arnold as a security guard in response to the December mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

Maybe he could just threaten the "bad guys" with his finger. It seems to work well with first graders.

Hmmm...

Sounds like an idea. Hire security guards with guns, but they are not allowed to have ammo.

They just throw their handguns at school shooters...lol!

hamiltongardener, in this age of electronic surveillance can they not put cameras around the school and have the "security (wo)man" monitor the screen(s)? A lockdown or other "security protocol" would be more easily and smoothly executed.
But this is wishful thinking.
The ACLU or some other organization is sure to have some grounds for objections.
