N.C. County Is Ending Gun-Free Zones, Will Hire Armed Security Guards for Every Public School (Video)

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

With guns, we are “citizens”. Without them, we are “subjects”.

Three people have been injured in a high school shooting in Maryland, on Tuesday morning.

A gunman who opened fire at Great Mills High School in Maryland was killed Tuesday after engaging an armed school resource officer, authorities said.

The shooter, Austin Wyatt Rollins, 17, was the only fatality. Police said Rollins used a handgun to shoot a 16-year-old female student who is in the ICU with life-threatening, critical injuries. A 14-year-old male student was also shot and is in stable condition.

Two injuries could have been 17 dead if Great Mills High School was a soft target.

It seems that this caused some people to wake up!

The News and Observer reports that Henderson County, North Carolina, explained their plan to hire people with law enforcement or military backgrounds to serve as “highly trained” armed personnel at all 23 schools and protect their 14,000 students.

“Henderson County has always been a sleepy little town,“ school board chairwoman Amy Lynn Holt said. ”We’ve not felt like we’re threatened here. Well, we have to start acting like we’re threatened.”

The hired personnel will not be sheriff deputies, but they will undergo the same hiring process as if they were. Applicants will also undergo psychological tests and receive training.

“The consensus from the populace of Henderson County seems to be that we need security people to do security and we need teachers to be able to teach,” Sheriff Charles McDonald said.

Yesterday situation proves that we need armed guards and maybe armed teachers as well because most of the tragedies that happened could have been avoided!
