Is anyone else more concerned with the thought of there being more guns in schools? Shortly after the Parkland shooting there was a school in the Atlanta area that had a teacher that locked himself in a room with a gun. There were reportedly shots fired.
I do agree that some armed personnel on school campus could stop an outsider from coming in and shooting up a school but how many incidents will we have within the school from those allowed to carry now? Sounds like putting a band aid on one problem while creating a whole new problem.

We got one for Christmas…..it’s still sitting upstairs in the box with the receipt. We are not big into “fried” foods in our house. This contraption honestly reminds me of the whole “pressure cooker” craze on infomercials a few years back……just one more item to be sold on the garage sale come spring!
Sounds about right. Hope no one gives me one, so I don’t have to try and sell it on a garage sale.Kent TParticipantFebruary 23, 2018 at 11:17 pmPost count: 274Kent TParticipantFebruary 22, 2018 at 12:33 amPost count: 274

This is not a discussion about support for or opposition to our 2nd Amendment rights, firearm legislation, mental illness, or the depravity of our current culture, etc.
I am interested in discussing the following ideas with people who have the power to get them implemented within our public schools. Who do I need to get in front of, and how do I go about doing it? Is this something that should be approached at the school district level, county level, state level, or national level? Thanks in advance for your feedback.
Below are a few ideas that I believe will deter school shootings from taking place. Please feel free to add your own ideas, but I’d like to mainly focus on these, or variations of these, as I believe they are budget friendly and could be implemented relatively quickly and easily.
1. Place one or multiple armed National Guard men/women at main entry points of all public schools. Screen all people entering, similar to how courthouse entries are screened today. If this means use of metal detectors, banning certain items, capping the size of backpacks, etc., so be it.
2. Lock all other entry points and establish security devices on them to stop unauthorized entry. Similar to many office buildings today.
3. Make annual self defense and firearm training courses mandatory for all faculty, and support qualified faculty to carry a firearm. Faculty would not be required to be armed, but carrying a firearm would be promoted.
Thanks again, BIDKent TParticipantFebruary 19, 2018 at 7:37 pmPost count: 274Kent TParticipantFebruary 19, 2018 at 2:52 amPost count: 274

I hope this never happens to me, as it rubs me wrong that a property owner might be forced into something they do not want. I feel eminent domain was for government initiatives (highways,etc), not private companies who will profit from it. A prime example is the pipeline that was just forced on Iowa landowners. Have you benefited from cheaper gas since it was installed? I didn’t think so.
Your right about eminent domain. Never should have been considered for private companies to use for no reason.Kent TParticipantFebruary 17, 2018 at 11:08 pmPost count: 274Kent TParticipantDecember 25, 2017 at 3:35 pmPost count: 274Kent TParticipantDecember 20, 2017 at 1:57 pmPost count: 274Kent TParticipantDecember 20, 2017 at 1:54 pmPost count: 274Kent TParticipantDecember 18, 2017 at 9:51 pmPost count: 274

Wouldn’t bother me any. Bring em back.Kent TParticipantDecember 1, 2017 at 11:31 pmPost count: 274Kent TParticipantNovember 21, 2017 at 10:38 pmPost count: 274
