The guy at the mall in Portland stole one. A 19 yo killed his mom and bf a few weeks ago in Oldsmar near me and got the gun by having his friend buy it. I could go on.

    I guess the only thing to do is have metal detectors everywhere and locks on every door and pray 10x a day that nothing bad is going to happen to my child while I can't be there to protect her.

    There are reports of two gunmen. Do they still think one gunman is on the lose?
    Just my opinion

    Reports are the man was wearing camouflage pants, and said to parents as he was being led away, "It's not me."

    Mine is only in preschool, never thought I'd have to worry. This is just so messed up.

    That is where the resource officer comes in. A school should always know who is scheduled to be at their doors. Parents write notes to their children's school's to let them know they are coming to get their children early. School's know when a sick child has to be picked up by a parent. School's know when a parent/teacher conference is scheduled. IF someone buzzes the door and it is someone who is not scheduled to be there, then the resource officer on school property should be the one to go up to the door and question the person's motives for being there.

    Also, maybe there needs to be an ID card (school logo, "PARENT" clearly written on it) where a parent could show it at doors. I know my nieces school, you have to have a pass (school logo on it) just to pick your kid up during regular pick up times. They won't allow any child in any car if they do not have this pass visibly showing.

    As someone else pointed out, I understand we are not 100% safe anywhere, but we should be able to put extra emphasis on our schools safety in order to protect our children.

    If anybody does Twitter, btw, follow this guy: @TheMatthewKeys. He's a Reuters guy (tempted to say "kid," he's so young!) and is excellent keeping one up to date. Terrific coverage on Sandy.
