    We don't need more people on the federal payroll. If you want to create a job lets make it local and keep the money local. How often do these mass shootings happen, most school security officers would sit all their life in a school waiting for a bad guy to appear and retire never seeing one. Protect the children but let each community decide what is best for them. One size does not fit all.

    Never look down on anybody, unless you're helping them up.

We might start first getting rid of gun free zones since they work about as good as drug free zones.
    I don't think "Federally employed armed security" is what anyone has in mind, only making funding available for those states and school districts that choose to have increased on-site security. Clinton didn't "hire" any LEOs, only made funding available, even if only for a short while. With all the crap the gov't funds (Measuring methane in cow farts for one), I think some of what is already being spent can be diverted to protecting schools. Thus, no "increase" in spending.

    Its just a carrot being dangled... there is no reason current cc that work for a school district cant cc in the school. I work for a school district and I leave my firearm at home because the law says I cant take it inside. Now i can leave it in my vehicle that has a lockbox and lock the vehicle but my locks dont work and if something was to go down by the time i got to my vehicle and got it the whole thing would probably be over. Teachers and staff would have the option and the cost would be minimal because if there was an extra course to take I would fork over my own money to do it voluntarily and I am not the only one.
