    1) I didn't suggest putting the kids in handcuffs or locking them in cages
    2) Prisons don't protect the inmates
    3) The school guards should be covert --just like the federal air marshals on airliners
    3) The focus should be on protecting the kids.   There are several options for that-- gun control is just one.  

    But We should not continue to leave kids vulnerable just to promote a gun control agenda.  How are those "Gun Free Zone" signs working out?

      schools in Los Angeles, I honestly have to say that I am not adverse to having an armed officer on campus. I can also say that I've never felt the need or desire to have one. Never even thought about it. Never thought it was important. Until Sandy Hook. The day a shooter enters one of my kids' schools is the day I will ask myself why the school didn't have someone there as protection. And I don't feel like getting to that point.
