Guard our children

If you are nuts and want to shoot someone, would you go to an U.S. Army base or a police station? No, you go where there is no resistance, such as a school, college or other gun-free zone. You want the evening news coverage.

Our leftist leader laments gun violence and wishes it would disappear. The local teachers union follows the same tact, and holds out for more money to stop arming officers. The media, in their twisted race of headlines, always emphasize the vulnerability of these situations. No one ever calls the police until there are shots fired and bodies.

At any institution of storage of gold or other valuable asset, armed guards are commonplace.

Reality dictates the same or higher value for our children, and a common sense plan to protect them since they are a favorite target of the weak and mentally ill.
