More schools choosing to take serious steps to prevent future school shootings

An Ohio school board has unanimously voted to place armed custodians on their K-12 campus in an effort to better protect their students from a future mass shooting.

Following Wednesday’s believed unprecedented 5-0 vote in the state, four male janitors were the first to volunteer to arm themselves with their own handguns on the rural Montpelier campus, the Toledo Blade reports.

The vote will permit only non-teaching employees to carry the firearms on the campus, so long as they complete a weapons training course.

Good. I deeply believe that this is the best way to both deter such attacks, and to end them quickly. No, nothing is going to be 100% effective, but protecting our kids in school IS the #1 priority. I also think it best that these decisions should be on the local level.
