Protect our children in schools
0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!
In light of all the recent school shootings, it breaks my heart and scares me to death thinking my child could be next. I know there's a lot of debate around what the solution is and truthfully, i don't think there is one. America uniting is the first step, and working together to figure it out is the next step. But that's not happening anytime soon, so in the meantime, let's focus on keeping our kids safe.
I hear a lot of people comparing schools to courthouses and government buildings etc etc, in terms of security and how easy it is to bring a gun in. But the thing no one talks about is that courthouses and government buildings have armed security and metal detectors, not a "gun free zone" sign.
My proposition is that we start putting our tax dollars to work by putting metal detectors in every school and having at least 2 armed guards in every school. This would be a much better use of money than it would be to "build a wall". Because the fact of the matter is, no matter what laws we pass or how many regulations we put into place, criminals will not follow them. They will find a way to hurt people. And the other fact if the matter is, there's no way to possibly take every gun off the street. So why not protect our kids now?
If you agree, please sign this position and hopefully they will listen to concerned parents coming together to protect our children. Let's unite despite our race, beliefs, or political standpoints. We all have children we want to protect.
