Letters: Armed guards needed at schools

When you walk into any bank in America, you will see an armed security officer within the first few seconds of your visit, if you’re not greeted by him or her. Why is it that after several school shootings in other states and guns are found in schools here in our state, has the Legislature not picked up this fact and taken action? The state mandates that we send our children to school under the understanding that they will be protected.

They need to make a law and fund uniformed armed officers who will be in every school in our state every day students are there. When and at what cost will our state learn this lesson? Where is the government for the people?
