Contract Security for Public Schools

This petition had 60 supporters

When you hug your babies and send them to school you expect that you will get to hug them when they get home as well. Sadly, in recent history the number of parents that have that opportunity taken away from them because of a crazed gunman has only increased.

Do we have any reason to believe that this will stop anytime soon?  Do lockdown drills and reactive training practices actually help? 

How about we get a little more proactive?

Instead of trying to disarm our entire society, why don't we decide to put some of our most highly trained and world renowned warriors (our retired military) to work as contract security? Many of our best men choose to go back to work overseas as contract security guards, why not keep them here to protect our most valuable assets, our future, our children? 

Who pays? Could this be government funded? Could this be private sector? Is there an opportunity for volunteers? There are several possibilities!

Losing one child to this type of tragedy is too many. It's time to come up with an actual solution. There are many ways to go about making this a reality and it's time we take a proactive stance rather than a reactive one.
