Re: WBR Parish considering arming teachers, staff as part of new safety measures

I can sympathize with the families at Sandy Hook, and those affected by the actions of one individual. But, placing weapons in the schools, even for defensive measures, would be like taking the law into their own hands. I believe that taking preventive measures would be more appropriate. Metal detectors, cameras, and keypad entry codes at entrances to the schools would deter most. Possibly posting armed security guards during classes might be a better solution.
