John “Don” Kaminar (left) and John Allison of the Arkansas School Safety Commission read through the panel’s preliminary report during a meeting Thursday in Little Rock.

And where will the money come from to fund this unfunded mandate? So we’ll steal from an already dwindling pot of education money. Just another example of taxpayers having to pay for the gun fetish by securing schools.

Wow! Who would have thought this commission would have come up with such an original idea?

Funny...there was an armed security officer at Parkland who went into hiding when he heard shots. But I’m sure that would NEVER happen in AR. It would also be hilarious, if it weren’t so pathetic, that the ‘commmission’ concluded that guns are also the answer to the dismal results outlined in the recent CDC study mentioned in the article.

Allowing armed teachers is also a good, common sense idea. What kind of
Parent would prefer their child be protected by air and harsh words instead of an armed and trained certified individual if facing attack by a bad guy with a weapon?
