We feel properly trained and equipped school marshals could serve in a similar capacity.
At the same time, they would be a deterrent to crime, just as air marshals are in our skies.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that bad guys with a gun are more apt to commit a crime where they aren’t going to encounter a good guy with a gun.
And, let’s be honest. We’re never going to have total control of all firearms in this nation, and we’re not going to cure every mentally ill individual with a penchant for killing. There is always going to be evil in this world.
We spend an incredible amount of money attempting to keep that evil from our airports, train stations, government centers and other places of public assembly.
It is time we do the same for our schools.
