Response to: Armed secutiry gaurds in school
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “Others might say that security guards should not carry guns because students may feel unsafe, and other accidents may happen”. This stood out to me because if you're a parent you should know of these massacres that happen in certain schools & should want more protection for your child. Not many other accidents can happen with a security guard carrying a firearm that can't happen with a police officer carrying a firearm. If anything if the students feel unsafe with a security guard carrying a weapon on the side of their waist, like a police officer, then they should have multiple firearms somewhere in the school just to have just in case someone comes in a school open fires. This doesn't happen often but security guards need to be prepared in case it does occur instead of waiting for police officers to arrive, because in the meanwhile people will be hurt.
I do agree with what you quoted from the U.s News “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” One reason i say this is because someone who is willing to put his life on the line to protect others from being harmed is a good person and we need those type of people as security guards in schools.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because this is a topic that should be talked about more. I think that all school security guards should be armed because no one wants another massacre where children and teachers are killed. The children are innocent and i respect teachers because they aren't paid much, most times teachers are teachers because they truly want to help their students succeed otherwise they would use their degrees they've earned in other areas.
