    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?'

    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: http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-895354 If this isn't possible, then we MUST do something!
