Last week we read Massad Ayoob's recent blog article about school security where he told a little bit about how Israel does it. Here's more on that subject. Sounds like a good idea to me.
In order to station armed guards in U.S. schools, an idea advocated by the National Rifle Association, America could tap a ready pool of qualified candidates, Shemtov said.

They’re people who took it upon themselves to help others.”
