I believe this is the correct forum to post this in. Mods, please move this thread if this is not the case. Thank you.
Heads Up: I ask that this thread doesn't veer off topic into another guns debate. That is not what I'm posting about.
After the latest school shooting, I was thinking on the statement President Obama made about the US being the only civilized country where there are
school shootings. I'm as appalled as he is over this.
I started thinking of a possible deterrent to these school shootings. As a 20 year Navy veteran, I think it would be doable to have our active duty,
guard, and reserves guarding all public schools in the country. Since things are winding down in other hotspots. This leaves many who need something
constructive to do. I think just the sight of Marines at a school will keep a lot of these dirtbags away.
Yeah, this would be a bit drastic, and there will be those who feel this country is already too militant. But I think this would be a good idea.
What do you all think about this? I'm prepared for a good debate on this. Please keep it civil.
