Provide an armed officer at every public school in the United States.

It's time for everyone to come together. It doesn't matter if you are a Democrat or Republican. It doesn't matter if you are anti-gun, or pro-gun. It's time to come together and use some common fucking sense. As of February 14th, 2018 we have had 18 school shootings in the United States.
We don't have time to keep arguing over gun control. We have to do something RIGHT NOW. Our country needs a tax increase. This increase would create a budget for every single public school in the country to have an armed security guard on staff.
Currently 22 percent of our military veterans are unemployed. Our veterans are already trained to handle firearms and this could create jobs for the men and women who served our country. Hire them under the local police department, give them an office in the school, the firearms they need, and a visual monitoring system. This budget would also allow for strict background checks, and psychological testing of everyone who applies. If they pass, give them a salary and the benefits they need to make a living.
Will having an armed officer at every school mean we will never have another school shooting? Probably not, but the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun. Can you imagine how many lives would be saved if that good guy was already on the campus?
We protect our banks with guns, our politicians with guns, even and our government buildings with guns. Yet, watch our precious teachers and children be murdered in cold blood at the very place they should feel the most safe. And we let it happen over, and over again.
Let's do this together. Let's do this now.
