I abhor the NRA and everything that they stand for; however, I taught school in the deep south during the early days of integration. We had drills on how to lock our classroom doors and protect our children from harm during a race riot. How many children died during the school-integration riots? None in my district. We had trained law enforcement in every high school to "keep the peace." It is a "no brainer." It will take years to get rid of all of the assault weapons on the street. Teachers should NEVER be expected to carry guns. Every school district should include in their budgets the costs of a law enforcement officer at every school. Can you put a price on our children's heads?
