Petitioning President Barack Obama

Mandate that every public school be protected by an armed security officer.

This matter is highly important because school violence is becoming more prominent in our country. After the horrific incident in Sandy Hook Elementary, we must take action. This school did exactly what they should have, they performed a lockdown; doors were locked, windows covered, lights turned off and children hid. Unfortunately, this defense that was performed with great efficiency was not enough. If you have been affected by the Sandy Hook school shooting or any type of school violence, I urge you to sign this petition. It is time that our leaders give our children what they need, which is our promise to protect them to the best of our abilities. Giving schools a trained armed security officer, that has endured the proper training and psychological testing will do this. It is our time to take a stand for every child in America, please sign.
