Do we (society) really care about our kids????

I have a question. Do we really care about our kids in schools??? Cause if so we are not showing that we care. We are not addressing the issue; we are focused on agenda driven left leaning liberal socialist ideas. I bet right now you are wondering what I’m talking about and saying to yourself I thought we are addressing the issue?

Well let’s sit and talk a spell about the issue we should be talking about. The most important issue that is being over looked, and gun control or mental health isn’t it. What we should be talking about is so simple, relatively cheap, and if applied the Parkland school shooting would not have happen. Nothing the Florida legislature is trying to pass currently would have stopped the school shooting. It does nothing to address the problem. That problem is physical security, a very simple solution to the current problem. We must care about judges more than we care about our schools because; down at just about every courthouse in the country we have a very simple physical security plan. Let’s think about what happen in Parkland, the shooter was not a current student and basically walked into an unsecure building. He sat his bag down pulled out a rifle, sounded the fire alarm and began firing.  

 Let’s start by making every building that our kids are in during school to only have one controlled entrance and exit. All of the other doors are locked from the inside and used as an exit only with an alarm that will sound and alert the staff if opened. Doing this will create an easily manageable way to control access. To further this you could place personnel at the entrance to unlock the door for authorized personnel, or you could have a camera and door lock controlled from the office, or you could even add facial recognition, biometrics, or retina scans. This equipment is relatively cheap as it is on almost all new smart phones. Just this alone would have prevented the shooting. Now let’s talk about the students. They can go through metal detectors and bags ran through an X-ray machine. This will help keep unauthorized weapons from entering the building. Now up until now I have addressed the problem we are currently facing in schools without the use of guns or weapons. Now to address an extra security measure you should not restrict the option of having certain teachers/staff armed. This would have to be on a voluntary basis and they must go through a training session every 6 months to maintain certification. Certification would be gun range firing live ammunition for target practice and also would include scenario training on the virtual reality simulator. Extra pay should be included to incentivize teachers or staff to take the additional duty and risk.

If I were currently a congressman I would be trying to find something we are stupidly spending tax payer money on and try to end it, as to not, increase spending so I could give that money back to the people in physical protection grants to help us and the schools protect our kids.

So if we are really concerned about our kids why are we having this stupid debate on gun control, why are we not calling our school boards, local, state, and federal elected officials demanding that they quit trying to take our rights and freedoms away and attack the real issue of physical security? Next time you see some crap on the news talking about increasing the age to buying long rifles, or even arming teachers we need to first stop the real problem and that is securing our schools. Once that is done we can and should discuss the other issues like arming teachers etc. We need to stop letting emotion dictate what decisions or direction we go and look at the facts from a fact based stand point. (We) = society
