Guns are the citizens right, tightening down on gun control is only going to make those honest people not have them. I am shocked and appalled that officers on school grounds aren’t carrying their weapons!! How are they supposed to protect and serve if they don’t have the tools!?! What’s more, gun safety and handling ought to be taught in the schools as well. This would also reduce the deaths of children who are curious about the ‘don’t touch’ item in the house. They aren’t being taught to respect them, they are taught to fear them. Having officers there without the necessary tools is like sending a fire department out to a fire with out water. I use this analogy because you have to respect fire and weapons alike. Furthermore, it has been proven that places that are known to have weapons are much less likely to be attacked. If someone were to go into a school where it’s being taught, there wouldn’t be an attack, and even if there was, it wouldn’t be as catastrophic as what we are seeing across the country. I grew up in a school where we had gun safety taught and even a firing range in High School. Never has there ever been an incident there. When officers started to patrol the schools, they weren’t rent-a-cops they were carrying their glocks. This should be a normal thing. Now, more then ever!
