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.

To:
U.S. Department of Education
U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Please Implement mandatory armed security guards in all public schools. Having armed guards is the only direct way to deter unlawful entry with illegal intention. After the rise in shootings lately, it is time we take action against violent crime, especially within our school system.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      There is always a chance of something happening, and the government should be doing everything possible to prevent danger.

      We need to have better security in our schools to prevent school shootings, which are occuring more and more often and it's unacceptable.

      I believe that by having armed security present in schools, "school campus shooters" will be scared away and our children will have somebody who can defend them. I also believe it to be a good idea that willing teachers may carry concealed weapons to school and surprise the "bad guys" by fighting back. By displaying signs warning about concealed weapons on campus "shooters" would already think twice about entering. We must protect our children, and not by taking the right for possessing firearms away from the good citizens....
