    Awesome. A mom that realizes a "Gun Free Zone" sign won't stop a killer, but an armed guard might.

    Without arguing over methodology, I think it's good that parents are willing to take some action of their own and not wait for someone else to fix the problem.

    Is police protection something to be bought now?
    Don't get me wrong I have no problem with armed security for schools, but.....

    In my high school there was a uniformed deputy there every day. Even had his own office. His presence wasn't missed from the sheriffs dept...

    This is A solution, not the only only one. F'rinstance, the Buckeye Firearms Association has offered a 3-day NO COST TO SCHOOL OFFICIALS 'First Responder' training class here in Ohio. I don't know the tally right now, but about a week ago, the BFA has received over 1,000 inquiries.

    For more details, visit the website BuckeyeFirearms.org

    Prolice protection has been for sale longer than I can remember. For those deparments that allow their officers to moonlight as security, it is a common thing. You don't think those cops you see in the malls, movie theaters, concerts, funerals, hotels, etc. are on normal patrol, do you? They are hired for that purpose. LEO security is much more respected than most commercial security.

    My kids' school has hired primarily sheriff's deputies but occasionally there is a police officer from one of the surrounding towns. It just depends on the day.

    While I'm glad the kidlings are safe, I'm still a firm believer that if they are going to force gun free zones on us, it should apply to police and military as well at all times. But that wouldn't make sense right? So eliminate gun free zones.

    That which is legal for the Government but not legal for the People is the definition of Tyranny.

    Off duty, paid police protection has been common for a long time. Cities hire officers based on the expected needs of the city, mainly 911 call load. The guys you see at jewelry stores or other security jobs are working overtime and being paid by a private company.
