Armed school security

Feb 1, 2013 11:25 AM PT

In response to An Armed Cop Disarmed School Shooter in Atlanta:

And this news breaks just as the Newtown school board votes to include a full-time police officer to provide security for each elementary school.  Seems like everybody's picking up on the suggestion our liberal friends told us was the absolute height of delusional insanity just a few weeks ago!
