Here we go again

Here we go again, chasing ghosts, by spending lots of money to make our schools more safe. Yes, it is a good idea to make and keep our school and children safe, but we can't do it by chasing ghosts, or some deranged person that wants to create harm, spend a lot of money to put a bigger burden on all good law-abiding people.

After all these expenses, whats to stop a deranged person to drive into the school yard as the buses are loading and start shooting kids or drive a car at high speed into a bus or the school building, or when the students are outside in sport activities. This is giving the deranged people that do these terrible things to get more publicity at our cost and does very little to make the kids safer.

A far easier solution in my opinion is to publish that armed personel is on the premises, and if a few personel wants to volunteer to do so great, nobody need to know who they are or what they are packing, at no cost to anyone. Let the ghosts chase the deranged people.
