Everyone is screaming about the Florida school shootings and what to do. I think the particular school was negligent — as was the school district. I would love to sue the school and the school district. Safety of the students is the highest priority and the principal and the superintendent both failed in their primary duty to keep students safe. I hope they are sued for a big amount of money.
Gun prohibition is not workable, although a more strict requirement on gun ownership may help. And doing nothing is not a solution. So both sides will fight forever and nothing will be done. One solution is having an armed guard in every school with all doors locked except the front main door. If it is too expensive, so what. If the budget will not permit an armed guard, then fire a teacher and hire an armed guard.
There has been almost 200 school shootings in the U.S. in the last year or two. Did any school have an armed guard in the school? The answer is likely no.
This may be a wild idea, but I bet it would work. Has any school tried it?
