    Newtown school shooting: Thoughts and tributes

    Returning Soldiers to School - NRA


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     DaElmersBack says military soldiers coming back to America should be considered to be potential armed guards for schools. 'Right now our schools remain un-protected... Action is needed, our children deserve to be protected,' he said. He believes this could be a suitable long-term solution in ensuring the safety of children at schools. He says the NRA made a good stance in their response to the Newtown school shooting. 'Instead of fighting about laws being changed, they came up with a solution we all can live with,' he said. 'When we send [our children] to school we expect them to be safe, at home we protect their lives, why not at school too?'
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    As so many soldiers come out of combat, they are looking for jobs. Wouldn't it be great to give them the job of protecting our children? As a child I played with little green Army men, I always looked up to them. Isn't our children's lives worth this effort? Protecting our children & putting our Veterans to work.


    Last week I posted that I believe teachers should be armed and given the tools to protect: If this isn't possible, then we MUST do something!
