Don't let schools be sitting ducks

SHARE: facebook Twitter icon Linkedin icon Google+ icon Email icon |  PRINTER-FRIENDLY
To all the innocent souls and survivors in Newtown: When the unspeakable becomes common speak, a speedy remedy knows no haste.
To say with knee-jerk reaction, let's ban assault rifles, is fruitless. It's the same as banning Chevrolets to stop drunk driving.
History clearly shows that schools are the target. And why not? They're everywhere. Full of the innocent and meek. With no defense. A coward's paradise. It's no wonder it's ongoing.
Any school is priceless minutes away from first responders. Police are useless to stop these massacres.
In my opinion, school officials should be "first responders"; armed and trained. Like it or not, it's kill or be killed.
