    I really don’t see what a metal detector would’ve done in a situation like this.

    Just curious where does all the money come from for the metal detectors? What are you going to do about all the other entrances to the schools?

    And @mcpapa nailed another major issue.

    Plain and simple what are our children’s lives worth, we pass levy’s for new books but won’t for security?

    Where are you getting the money for it? Some school districts have over 100 locations within their district.

    NFL & MLB stadiums can afford all those metal dectators. School districts are strapped for money the way it is.

    Putting metal detectors at every entrance at every school just isn't practical.

    You’re 200k property tax goes up by 20 bucks a year. I am willing to pay that to offer another layer of security for my kids. That’s not asking for much.

Wolf Blitzer has likely never had one in his hands but can tell you all about how violent that particular gun is. Nevermind the violent person that has to pull the trigger numerous times to cause such a tragedy.
    It should come. The AR-15 has been used in how many mass shootings now?

    I am sure someone said that about sporting events at one point in time. It might not be the best fix but it’s a start and like I said security isn’t convenient. They help at sporting events and banks why can’t we try them at schools? Honestly, it’s better than the current nothing in place right now.

    Agreed in this case, but they are not pointless. They would be a deterrent. There is no ONE thing to do. No magic bullet here. It needs to be vetted and researched at every locale. I believe they are prudent in many places. like almost everything you have tow weigh risk, cost, time, logistics, personnel.

    Not an easy and "one size fits all" decision.

    True. They could be a deterrent. There are metal detectors in a lot of schools in the inner cities and you rarely hear of mass school shootings taking place in inner cities.

    The ADT sign in my front yard offers me a little more security than the guy across the street that has no sign. Security comes in layers and we need to offer more layers of security for schools.

    In this particular situation, I agree. It wouldn't have stopped anything.

    I do think there would be benefits to having them though.

    This will stop as soon as schools are no longer a barrel full of fish. I don't disagree with Metal detectors but without armed guards and complete control of all entrances its for nothing. Schools are easy targets and that has to stop. Any entrance to a school should have an armed guard stationed at it with at least a metal detector wand.

    I agree. I just don't see the purpose of an AR-15. And at this point obviously it has become the weapon of choice for a reason.

    Didn’t this school have armed guards though? Or are you meaning a sizable squad of them?
