Dont mess with Marlboro Township. The leafy, well-heeled New Jersey suburb will station a permanent armed cop in each of its nine schools starting Jan. 2. * * * The mayor and other town officials had approved the initiative before the chief of the National Rifle Association ignited a firestorm on Friday by calling for armed guards for schools.

That would be far more effective and over time I believe we'll see far more of this.
Holy smokes. You would want to allow Erik Loomis, Ward Churchill, and the dingbats at Seattle Central Community College to carry firearms?
My sons both attended elementary/middle/high school in a NYC suburb. The elementary schools ALWAYS employed retired, armed officers, in plain clothes. The middle and high school had an active, town assigned, plain clothes officer in addition to multiple, armed, retired officers. I sincerely thought this was common practice in other towns. Guess not.
This whole idea will come to a screeching halt about the time the left figures out that a ringer can fire off a few rounds in a school.
“Armed security is costly. A far better way is to allow all school staff to pack heat.”
Bill the union.
Agree. Anyone who is against the right of a person to be a psycho killer is a hater. The are just rotten lousy "crazyists." That;s almost as bad as being a racist.
I agree completely. The best solution would be to hire retired police or military.
“This really doesnt make it fair for the psycho killers.”
Good point - without the pyscho killers how can they justify their gun grabs?

As the “debate” rages, more and more examples of the leftist hypocrisy come to light:
WLS radio 890am: Jim Johnson, station reporter, reported that Mayor Emanuel was “ outraged” that the NRA suggested putting trained armed security/police officers in all schools in response to the recent shooting at the Newtown elementary school.
Oh, outraged huh? Gee, if he’s soooo outraged, then why doesn’t he pull his kids out of the LAB School at the U of C campus. Guess the 2 U of C armed police officers that work the Lab School everyday just make for such a scary and unsafe environment. Oh wait, if he did that then he just might have to enroll his kids in the local CPS school by his house!?!?! Wait, that can’t happen. CPS is just good enough for the peasants kids but not for his little angels. Double standard hypocrite.

i love it...
i will get one of those signs immediately
Wayne LaPiere took this proposal away from the Democrats and beat them to it. And now they are pissed.
So the Democrats are saying this is a bad plan, when in fact the Democrats would love to create another government TSA type agency specifically for government schools.
Think union membership and government control.
Consider this twist:
Armed security is intrusive. I'd like to see "Armed Security" teachers. This individual within a school could teach a class on 2nd amendment; for upper grades, there could be an elective for learning to handle a weapon.
Oh, and for those teachers inclined to do so (ie, liberty minded... believers in the 2nd from any political persuasion), get trained, licensed, outfitted for concealed carry).
The result would be no "Armed Security" whose union job would be to hang around eating donuts all day for that one chance every year where one nutjob wantonly kills somewhere in the US; some guy who would just be hanging out at the water cooler or staff cafeteria all day.
And yet MANY inner-city schools already resemble prisons with locked doors, metal detectors and guards.
So I'm confused. Are the Democrat / liberals saying that their own version of armed camps are fine for the inner-city but not OK for the suburbs? Or, God forbid, Sidwell Friends?
Freaking hypocrites. Again.
I glad she’s reconsidering, other than making prisons out of our schools the only answer to this problem is “a good guy with a gun”.
That is an insult to the over 7.6 million concealed weapon permit holders in this country.
No it isn’t. It was made in the knowledge that educators, most likely most educators aren’t capable of dealing with a pistol, don’t want to learn and it is not their job.
It has nothing to do with those who know their weapons stuff and are qualified and legal. The chip om your shoulder is falling off it seems.
There are numerous well trained highly motivated Army and Marine Corps veterans who would be ideally suited for providing security at schools. The sandbox has provided a large number of men who are used to fighting in urban environments where minimizing civilian casualties are a part of the ROE. We should use them and many of them could use a good job.
