The proposal to station armed police in all schools is a sad commentary on the state of our country and the violence that is tolerated. Unfortunately, the likelihood of this being implemented is quite remote. The cost would be prohibitive, especially in view of the reluctance to raise taxes which would most certainly be required if this were to be done. In addition, why stop at schools? Why not have armed police at churches, movie theaters, shopping malls as well as other venues where mass shootings have taken place?
