The president is on the right track pushing ahead with plans to build a wall to defend our border from illegal interlopers. However, he is way behind the times with his desire to physically “see through” the wall.
I believe we should do everything possible to keep killers out of our schools. But even if our best efforts fail (and they will), we need a last line of defense to protect the children. That last defense, I believe, should be a concealed carry program (CCP). A few well-qualified volunteers (staff or teachers) would be authorized to carry concealed weapons following thorough background screenings and proper training. This training should include initial certifications on a firing range and recertification every six months so the volunteers would be able to react professionally in an emergency.
