I guarantee you that a fully trained, able bodied, able minded and able to pass the most rigorous of background checks volunteer force could be mustered and in place so fast you'd be amazed. They'll use their own firearms and ammunition also. Can do.

then you have a bunch of UNKNOWNS that are foreign to the school,nobody can tell who's supposed to be there and who isn't. Strange people coming and going,who's to know if a bad guy slips in? And you end up with complex schedules to keep.
NOT a good idea,not compared to allowing armed school employees.
armed school employees who have carry permits costs nothing,and puts armed GOOD people right where they would be needed all the time the school is open,close to the children that need protecting.
It's a PROVEN-to-work method.(Israel does it,and it works there,against real terrorists.)
those employees are supposed to be there anyways,and everyone knows them.(but not WHO is armed...)

Why else would he refuse to protect the four Americans he murdered..when all is said and done, Dead men tell no tales. What about the jets he sent to his Muslim Brotherhood Brethren and the 2 billlion in funds?

Ahhhh .............. the "new Math" lives.

In the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting, the NRA proposed placing an armed police officer in every school saying that it’s “the one thing we can do immediately that can make our children more safe.” Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter slammed the proposal, calling it a “completely dumb*** idea,” but a Rasmussen poll finds that most Americans don’t agree—especially among parents of school-aged children.  

Fifty-four percent (54%) of American adults would feel safer if their child's school had an armed security guard. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 26% would feel...
