Time to staff schools with armed guards

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionJust a few short weeks after the Parkland massacre we have another shooter walk into an unguarded door in a school in Maryland and shoot two students.Most of the solutions offered over the last couple of weeks to solve this problem involve gun control. That issue makes our politicians feel good, but doesn’t solve the problem at all. Let’s face it, we’re never going to get guns out of the hands of people who want to kill us. Let’s bite the bullet and spend the money necessary to control the access to our schools and secure them with metal detectors and armed guards. We don’t need any more of our kids getting killed in school.In my opinion it’s the only solution to this problem that is going to work.Ron BelliSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesSchenectady’s Lucas Rodriguez forging his own path in dance, theater, musicSchenectady NAACP calls for school layoff freeze, reinstatement of positionsFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Schenectady police reform sessions pivot to onlinelast_img read more
