I'm all for someone volunteering for this but there needs to be a standardized traning with specific parameters on identifying and engaging a potential threat. Otherwise this has the potential to attract guys like George Zimmerman

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.

Fine but ahh.....what happens to me if I actually have to shoot?Can I look forward to being dragged off by a mob of screaming liberals who just saw me off a 14 year old kid with a gun?
I don't want to scare anyone either,I am already a monster in the eyes of some on this very board. I do have PTSD they could call me crazy and put me away.
Oh and for the record.PTSD and Dementia are two different things.
