It is Time to Protect Our Schools with Good Guys that have Guns!

The last few weeks I have received numerous calls from members around the country…..we have been hit again with another school shooting and this time it seems to be causing real discussion and possible changes in laws. The conversations have been emotional because people are scared for our kids.

Nobody wants kids to get shot in America or any other place for that matter. Kids are innocent and shouldn’t have to be potential targets for any crazed lunatic who is out to cause harm.

You ask ten people on what American schools should do to protect themselves and you get ten different answers depending on who you ask.

I personally believe that the best way to protect our kids is to place Security Professionals and/or under cover police with concealed Firearms in the schools. These steps along with “hardening” the school as a target by locking all doors to the outside, security cameras, restricting entry to one or two locations will greatly increase the security of the school. That will work. Some may not like the new look of the Modern School in 2018 but folks this is the reality.

I have 2 children who are in school and I don’t have any problem with my kids being protected by trained Security Professionals at the school. To me it makes common sense so why not do it. Criminals, Racists, and Mentally ill people aren’t going to change if they want to hurt you. They are going to continue.

You can’t talk your way to a safer school. We must take action by doing something tangible that will work….. Our kids deserve it so let’s give them at least that.

Evil people will always get guns so we must always be prepared to stop them by depending on ourselves. We have a choice at this moment in time and our kids are depending on us. If every gun was taken from every Law Abiding Citizen all you would do is make it that much easier for Criminals to kill people because Criminals will always have Guns regardless of what you do.

It is time for America’s schools to look at the reality in 2018. Academic Institutions can no longer have open door policies so that anyone off the street can come on any campus and starting killing

Until that stops the same will unfortunately continue ….
