In light of recent events, the actions taken by school boards or districts wasn't always reassuring. Many finally decided to fix long standing issues like having working cameras or added more or just installed them, finally. Some schools chained or locked-down doors but that may cause other issues. Further some decided to get that fixed with better door locks or controlled access. The whole being for me it was something they should have already been long done and/or in the works prior to the sad events. Also, there were all to often nothing in the "firearms" for school personal other than security or police officers. In out local area, before the sad event happend, some were already removing such personal or reduced them or sought different funding or billed directly. Now, you don't hear too much about them, but funding still hasn't changed but it seems some was gotten.
As for anyone other than true police or security personal, I wish no one has access to weapons. It doesn't make me feel safe if i have rely on someone that whose normal course of the day isn't security other than watchful eyes. It seems malls have better security than schools IMHO. -----Willy

NRA school protection recommendations]
Would you feel better knowing that certain firearms and accessories for them would be more tightly controlled or would you feel better if there was a physical presence of trained security persons or school staff there?
For those who don't like anything about the NRA, I'd hope that the name of the recommending organization doesn't distract from their message. Personally I'm saddened that such discussions need to happen and contingencies put into place but I think it's time for a reality check. We have plenty of loonies out there and people who consider laws to be just a nuisance that slows them down rather than prevents them from carrying out evil acts.
