'Something to think about: 'The constitutional provision enshrined the principle of individual liberty—and extending a militarized state into the schools would only undermine it. Proposals that posit the only way to keep kids safe is to raise them in police states, kept under guard by killer drones, assault rifles, and armed teachers will almost certainly tend towards gross violations of students’ First Amendment rights to speech and Fourth Amendment rights to privacy. They exhibit a circular logic that runs deeply counter to the spirit of the Second Amendment which implies a duty to resist tyranny, in all the forms of military, surveillance, and governmental overreach. Suggestions to create a police state in American schools mirror other pro-authoritarian tendencies. They’ve trapped the country in an arms race between government and civilians.'
