The real world: armed guards in school = bad idea [View all]

We actually had an armed guard in my junior high school; it was a reasonably-tough school in New York City in the 1970s. Don't remember if it was a cop or some other type of guard.

A bad kid somehow got hold of the guard's gun. Amusing standoff ended with nobody hurt or killed. My parents moved us out to the suburbs shortly thereafter.

@#$% happens. Guns are an instant @#$% multiplier.

Perhaps we should keep guns of any sort out of schools.
