Is it time to hire armed guards for our local schools?
After the killings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., parents with children attending our public schools are cautious, if not downright petrified. While we would like to think that the shooting of 20 6- and 7-year-old children was a random act of a mad man, we need to review our options here in the Brainerd School District 181.
Discussions around the community vary from “It’ll never happen here,” to “What if it happens here?”
