Maybe time has come to have armed veter­ans guard our schools

Manteca Bulletin - - Local/ State/ Opinion -

Ed­i­tor, Man­teca Bul­letin, Ev­ery school, in ev­ery city (for the most part ) is de­signed for easy ac­ces­si­bil­ity. Ex­cept for the schools in the com­bat zones of Amer­ica, any per­son whose in­ten­tions are to do harm to the school’s oc­cu­pants, can usu­ally breeze in and out.

That said, as we don’t seem to want to for­tify the schools to the point our chil­dren can be a bit safer, I have a rec­om­men­da­tion that has a lot go­ing for it.

Hire, arm, equip and place at least three veter­ans in each school. You will have a large pool of re­sources to choose from and you will prob­a­bly have a lot of un­paid vol­un­teers to as­sist those work­ing for spe­cial events etc.

Many will com­plain about a “po­lice state”. Those com­plain­ing have no bet­ter ideas and so far, the lib­er­als’ ideas are not work­ing.

Does this work? I don’t know but if you were to ask Is­rael and many African coun­tries, they might just point out the stats of their school shoot­ings vs ours.

Gripe all you want, but, noth­ing else is work­ing. Give it a try. Who knows, maybe it will work. War­ren Barth Man­teca
