During a recent gun violence prevention public hearing in Hartford, Connecticut, Bill Stevens, a father of a Sandy Hook student who survived the massacre that took place in December, testified. Stevens explained why his daughter is safer at home than she is at school because "911" and "lockdown" are not enough to protect her from an evil person. Stevens also defended the right to bear arms which is not only written in the Second Amendment, but in the Connecticut constitution as well. He argued gun owners shouldn't be turned into suspects no matter how many firearms or rounds of ammunition...
In response to:
I would suggest the following: The local school board should have one or two volunteer teachers sent through the state or local police academy and be made sheriff deputies or local city police officers that have arrest powers and who are then able to carry a weapon. These officers/teachers would then be able to teach their classes and yet be available for police duties within the school. It wouldn't hurt to have them ride a beat for a few months during the summer either. Just to let them know what being an officer is really about and to give them experience in that job.
