How concerned are you over security in our schools after the horrific shootings in Newtown, CT?

How could you ever prepare for a gunman to take over an elementary school? 20 kids gone, they never stood a chance. No one was prepared for a gunman. We can all sit back and think about how our local school would deal with that threat. We arent prepared as our school leaders dont have automatic weapons under their own desks and lack the training of law enforcement. Maybe all our teachers need training similar to law enforcement to protect our kids and themselves. These situations are becoming too common and without warning. We lose a piece of ourselves with each innocent life lost as we struggle to understand how & why it ever happened.

Automatic weapons are illegal in this state. If the Pilots were armed after 9-11, then why not have Lic. Armed Security in our schools, to protect our children ? The teachers in Isreal are armed and their policies to protect their kids work for them. The way the mentally ill are dealt with in this country needs to be addressed. 20-23 years ago, the mentally ill would be living in one of the homes along the boardwalk, now they are out roaming the streets, unsupervised.
