Well-trained, armed teachers

Well-trained, armed teachers would be much more effective than one armed deputy who will most likely not be in the area should he be needed.

Seriously they have to wait

Seriously they have to wait till a tragedy happens in order to have more security at our children's schools? That's real sad our children leave each day to be in the schools hands and responsibility not only to learn but we are confident that they are in good hands there should have been security in the first place not only elementry but ALL schools in general!!! And my most sincerest condolences go out to all the famlies of the children may god b with yall...

the school system should

the school system should hire a armed private security company to stay out side of the schools to monator and challange anyone who looks like they don't belong there, i work for a armed security company and we are well trained officers our officers are prior military police,special forces and prior law enforcement the company i work for is G4S out of raliegh, nc we can work with the sheriffs at the schools and inform them of unusual activitys we also have special police officers all the county has to do is contact them and they will have officers in the school to help the sheriffs office

Safety in schools

What they need to be doing is taking kids off the net first thing. Even though has nothing to do with the crime. Next thing Look at what their kids have been doing recently online to see what they have been doing. Any activity bad or good you can tell about your son or daughter means they need help from psychologist. Trust me I know lot more than anyone knows. Everyone needs help don't think just because you as reporters special or psychologist don't need someone to talk to they do.
