In the wake of yet another school shooting, the call for armed security in our schools is more urgent than ever. It’s time to put aside political agendas and do what’s best for our kids.
Armed guards protect politicians, celebrities, banks, government buildings… why not our children? It’s time to put their safety first. We can make America’s schools safe again – for our kids and for our future.
In fact, we can protect schools and provide jobs for a highly skilled group of people who happen to always be looking for meaningful work: veterans and former First Responders. Of course, no one is suggesting that this employment is not accompanied by a rigorous background check and psychological evaluation.
Yes, this solution would cost money. But what better use for taxpayer dollars that protecting the most innocent among us? How about instead of sending billions of dollars to Ukraine, which will be used to arm them against Russia, we focus on hardening our schools.
Of course, many say that this shouldn’t be necessary in America. This cowardly argument is used to pivot the discussion away from real solutions to gun control. But the fact is, there are maniacs in every corner of the world and if we want to protect our children, we need to be proactive.
Armed guards in schools are not a perfect solution, but they are a necessary one. Let’s put aside our differences and do what’s best for our kids. They deserve nothing less.
What do you think? Are armed guards in schools a good idea? Should we be hardening our schools instead of sending billions to arm Ukraine against Russia. Share your thoughts in the comments below!
