This question has already been answered — we have guns in our schools. In our county it’s the Sheriff’s department that staffs the SRO positions. The real question is what level of training should someone entrusted with carrying firearms have before they are allowed in our schools. Many police officers have very little firearms training or practice. There are retired military personnel working in many schools across the nation with significant firearms experience. Still we do not allow them to utilize this training and experience to protect our children. This ‘jocular’ article contributes to the misinformation keeping our children unsafe in school.
