LTE: Schools are easy targets

October 10, 2006
USA TODAY

In the article “ ‘A horrendous crime scene,' ” the crucial sentence was, “Police believe that he chose the school because it was an easy target.” Schools are not “gun-free” zones; they are killing zones because we insist that no one inside is armed. Feel-good programs only encourage attacks. We've seen many times that police do not arrive in time (News, Tuesday).

The only way to stop these crimes is to properly train and arm the teachers and administrators so that they can respond from inside the school immediately with deadly force.
