Good for him. Whether he is armed or not, it is the sense of security, the symbolism that he and the uniform provides, that offers an atmosphere of
safety and an ease of mind to both him and his daughter, and perhaps to many others. Should anyone attack the school, they would have to risk an
encounter with him first, or forfeit their element of surprise attempting to subdue him.

well did this school not have a safety officer? my middle/high schools had a cop that was at the school all the time watching out for # going down or
in case in high school if there was fights or something like weapons/drugs he could be there to take care of it.
I know in my city, there are armed guards even in the supermarkets, and in some drug stores. Although, about maybe a week ago, one of the local CVS's
was robbed, so they probably have security now. Sandy Hook was probably one of those peaceful little places where no one thought that crime, never
mind a mass shooting,
at an elementary school, could happen there.
