  • Yes, school police officers should be armed.

    Students are getting worse and worse behaved every year. Police officers need to be armed at school because it is to dangerous for them to be unarmed. In high school there are future murderers there. Many of them even have already started selling drugs. Police officers have a right to be safe.

  • Our children need to be protected.

    School police officers need to be armed in order to provide adequate safety for our children. In cases like what happened in Connecticut, if there was armed school police officers, innocent lives could have been spared and their families would not have to know what it is like to lose a child. The community as a whole could have been spared such a tragedy.

  • Yes, they should be armed.

    Yes, I believe school police officers should be armed. Police officers patrolling our city streets are armed, so why shouldn't school officers also have a gun in case a deadly situation would arise? There have been many crimes committed in schools, especially crimes involving guns. If anyone is going to intervene in these kinds of situations, it should absolutely be a trained officer with a gun.

  • Police, not teachers, should be armed.

    I think at the moment, it's the least we can do. I would like to think that if I was a parent, having an armed police officer at the school would make me feel better. Police are trained and know what to do and what not to do. I think they all should be armed regardless of where they are. I'd much rather have an armed officer than an armed teacher who may not know what to do under pressure.

  • Arming School Police officers is the best thing we can do considering our current situation.

    Totally agree with jakelepper. If the school police is armed, they can quickly eliminate the perpetrator before he even gets the opportunity to kill countless of innocent students. Worst case scenario, the perpetrator, unfortunately, manages to injure one or two students before he is eventually located and permanently immobilized by the school police. However, without guns, the school police would have no way of stopping the perpetrator, and the perpetrator would be free to proceed with the massacre. In addition, by simply knowing that school police officers are armed, future perpetrators would be less inclined to carry out their sinister plans at all!

  • As a high school student, it would be very comforting although disappointing.

    Unfortunately today, students and faculty alike need protection from the violence that an active shooter would bring to a school. Such a devastating event is prevalent in America. A trained, experienced officer would be an example of a responsible adult to students. It would be very reassuring and somewhat unsettling once one realizes the gravity of this necessary security measure.

  • Protection, Discipline, Safety

    Having armed police will make schools much safer and less bullying. Having a police officer in the hallway will make sure there is no trouble around. You won't have to worry about students standing against the police if they are armed. Police can escort them to the principals office not court.

  • Absolutely, positively yes!

    The argument is simple, a man walks in with a fully automatic assault rifle and there is an unarmed police officer in the doorway. He is the first one killed by the maniac, following dozens of other innocent children and teachers. Had the officer been armed, the entire situation could likely have been prevented and the public would immediately call for all school police to be armed. It's an obvious argument!

  • Why there should not be armed police In school.

    Firstly, it makes the students feel intimidated. Armed police, walking around with massive guns, students can’t concentrated in school. Students will be scared, terrified and daunted. Not only that but they can get any weapons from the police and play around or even injured someone and carry them to school and back home. Would you like that happened to any of your family?

  • No, that is unsafe

    Police officers on schools being armed would spell disaster. There is too great a chance of them acting too quickly and harming someone innocent, losing control, or snapping. There is also the risk of a student getting hold of the weapon and using it and hurting other students, whether on accident or on purpose. It just creates too great a risk.

  • No, school police officers should not be armed.

    More guns in an area with small children who are not trained in how to be near an armed weapon is a formula for disaster. We barely have enough money to properly educate our students. Now we are expected to pay for armed guards to protect them? Society as a whole needs to change, but adding guns to a place where very few individuals are proficient in operating them only increases the likelihood of accidents.
