Teachers as Armed Guards in Michigan....reserve-officer-training

After Sandy Hook, he felt compelled to do something,Victor Pierce says. So he decided to invite teachers and school administrators to participate in the reserve-officer-training program. After they’d completed the class, Pierce would swear them in as volunteer reserve officers, and if the school district gave its blessing, they could carry concealed weapons on campus

this is a great idea and gets around a lot of red tape

Correct me if I am wrong but RO cops are not held at the same level as full time. Here in Texas we have some schools that already have teachers carrying. There is one CCW trainer in the Houston area that offer free classes to teachers and filled 400 spots in 24 hours with a waiting list of other incase of anyone backing out.

Don’t under estimate the parental will to protect the kids because I think you will find that most if not all of these people will fight for them kids. Good, bad or indifferent these people bond with them kids and as we seen in newtown they will die for them

absolutely. but that doesnt mean that everyone is fit to carry even if they are fit to protect. could be a nice guy that loves the kids that would protect them, but then goes home and shoots his mother because she nags him too much. just want GOOOOOD screening...last thing we need is something going wrong in one of these kinds of programs.

I think the kids will be lot safer, as long as they don't make any Catholic priest reserve officers. Oh lord, did I say that. The devil made me do it!

"as long as they don't make any Catholic priest reserve officers" and greeks too... they don't like to leave the "kid's behind" either ....lmao

But that doesn’t mean that everyone is fit to carry even if they are fit to protect". One person with a gun willing to stand on the wall is worth 20 of them that talk a good fight but run and hide. I disagree with you and sorry you feel that way I think anyone willing to make an effort to protect another is better than none at all and damn sure better than the yellow back Nick Meli you all are calling a hero. Hero’s don’t run and hide with the woman
A warrior is forged in battle but a hero is found in the most unusual places
