'Should teachers be armed?' Fast Focus: Not the first step

January 20, 2013 

Like so many others I'm appalled and deeply saddened with the slaughtering of the students and other innocent people lately. I personally have no problem with the consideration of placing guns in the schools so long as the program is well supervised. I am, however, concerned with the fact that we are introducing something new in the school when our priority should be to first replace that which we have thrown out of the school system. We need to restore God whom we dismissed from the system to pacify a minority of our citizens. Historically, majority rules.
