Schools are not sanctuaries. There is a significant rise in violence towards schools. We must provide our educators and school officials some form of non-lethal defense. We entrust our children's safety with these individuals and give them nothing but desks and closets to hide in. Non-lethal weapons are used in combat situations to limit the escalation of conflict where employment of lethal force is prohibited or undesirable, where rules of engagement require minimum casualties, or where policy restricts the use of conventional force (Wiki). These weapons are cost effective and easily stored. Please help protect our children by signing and sharing this petition. Thank you.

      I am a father of 4 and believe that there should be more safe guards in place to protect the future of our nation because closets and desk will not cut it every time. Maybe this can be the first step toward greater responsibility being put into our educators hands with better ability to deescalate the situation because there will not always be an officer close by or the recent tragedy none at all.

      They need better gun control. This kind of thing shouldn't happen to our kids.
