Enough! Let’s Talk About Stopping School Shootings Instead of How They Make Us Feel! by Stacey Roberts
I’m tired – no, I’m mad as hell – of reading all the tips on how to deal with the emotions caused by these shootings. I’m tired of finding ways to keep our kids from being afraid to go to school. Or that our kids are being taught how to dive under desks or into closets when they hear gunfire.
As parents, for the most part, we keep our kids safe and we need to ensure our schools do, too. After all, our kids spend more time at school than they do with us. When they are safer going to a movie or getting on an airplane it’s time we take action.
I don’t feel arming teachers is a good idea, but there needs to be armed personnel guarding every entrance at every school as well as the sports fields. Let’s give veterans, who are trained to take out a perpetrator without giving it a second thought, this job. The knowledge that our schools are being guarded like this would most likely defer any attack to begin with. Put some metal detectors in for added security, as well.
Beyond that, I suggest you watch the meeting President Trump hosted at the White House. So many great ideas were exchanged, civilly.
