    Isn't that the proverbial "Good guy with a gun" approach? More guns in the schools can't be the answer!

    IMO, this quote by the Chief shows that the best solutions are usually local and not from Washington, D.C.

    "Sometimes the best answers come when we stop listening to everyone else and take it upon ourselves to make common sense decisions based on what is right for the safety of our children in our own community. ... It's time for change."

    Great idea maybe help with bullies and drug problems also...
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    Dramatically boosting the ratio of armed citizens (good guys) to armed violent criminals is indeed one of the only real ways to combat crime on the instant it occurs.

    The sooner folks recognize the futility of destroying citizens' ability to protect themselves wherever they are, the sooner we'll see reductions in the incidence of successful such attacks. Including at schools. One would think the sense of such steps would be more common than it is.

    I'm all for armed police, sheriff's deputies, and qualified administrators, faculty and citizens being armed in schools and elsewhere.

    The Palm Beach County School system has had a School Police Department with officers assigned to the schools since 1972. It is called being proactive and not dependent on the local PD's 10 to 15 minute on scene response times.
