My local walmart has more security then my local elementary school. The presence of authority or security does inhibit those who are paranoid or wish
to pre-meditate crime. This is proven true in most scenerios, unarmed guards to thwart crime.
Please note, my intention here is to spark proactivity at a local level for our young ones. Not the call for active military, not the implementation
of a police state. So far the only ones stepping up to the plate have been retired vets. Not congress, not trolls on ATS, no one....
These vets have been a good example....yes some may have PTSD, but so do allot of those who serve on the police force or who are doctors, teachers,
ATS members, cashiers at McDonalds, but knowing this is never an excuse to why we should back off on doing something about it.
I dont care about all the debates and arguments, the misconceptions or assumptions. Fact is, our children need better protection. PERIOD.
