This issue is important due to the rise of fatal shootings, especially those within our public school system. Children should not fear having to go to school. Parents should not worry if their morning kiss good-bye will be their last they give to the child or children they brought into this world. The fact of the matter is, the bad guys have guns and do not respect law, or human life. Schools need to take responsibility for not hiring full time, on duty Law enforcement officers, or at least armed security personnel in order to protect students, teachers, faculty, and staff from these heinous acts of gratuitous violence. I, as a parent and concerned citizen of the United States of America, Urge everyone to sign this petition so that our children have qualified armed guardians watching over them, and keeping our schools a place where safety should always come first.
