On Feb 14, 2018, 17 lives were taken from us by a sick, deranged, 19yr old madman, when he walked into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School with an AR15, that he bought legally. Since then, the mass shootings around the country have continued, and more lives have been taken. Recently, a 9yr old from Broward county brought his fathers loaded gun to school and threatened to shoot 3 classmates, and 2 students, 11 and 12yr olds, brought knives to school, hid in the bathroom and intended on stabbing and killing as many as 25 “younger” kids as they came in, but fortunately they were all apprehended in time. All of our airports and government buildings are protected with metal detectors, but not our children and teachers at school? Why? Our children are our future, and our teachers are their foundation. Regardless of whatever common sense gun laws are passed, nothing will stop a student from within or an outside intruder from bringing a deadly weapon into our schools, except for metal detectors. There are many schools across the country that currently have metal detectors in place, and they have managed to make it work, avoiding crimes within. We must come together as a community, and demand our school board have metal detectors installed immediately in all Broward county public schools. Nine months later, and our schools are no safer than they were on 2/14/18. Understandably, we realize the logistics of installing and manning metal detectors can be trying, however, the logistics of choosing a cemetery plot for your child, is beyond comprehension. There are layers and layers of protection needed at the schools, like bullet proof glass, proper fencing and single point of entry, but none of that will stop someone from coming into our schools with a deadly weapon, except metal detectors. 

Please sign and share our petition today, so we can stand united and demand protection for our children, teachers and staff.
