The NRA has suggested placing an armed police officer in every school, and commented that "only a good man with a gun can stop a bad man with a gun."
I think the former is too heavy a financial burden. Schools have many good men and women. I suggest many would volunteer to carry a concealed gun. After testing and training, and perhaps being deputized without extra pay, they could provide even better protection for our youths than the police presence the NRA suggested.
