arming schools

Arming Schools 

My heart sinks on Fox channel experts are talking 
how to protect schools, to my dismay it is about 
arming teachers and principals making schools
 into warzones and more killings. The elephant in
the room is arms, or too much of it.  
Arming schools compound the problem and 
the very idea must be rejected… yes we have heard
this before “guns do not kill, people do.”
But guns are a facilitator in the hands of the mad,
or of temporary angry and that include teachers too.
A school must be an oasis of learning and peace,
and the second amendment needs to be amended.

    Dear Jan - The shooter here in Newtown had easy access to them in his home (as I heard reported) and tried to buy one (refused) at a Dick's Sporting Goods store in of all places the local mall -stupid stupid stupid. Survivalists are nuts. What is Portugal's policy on guns?
