School violence will continue until we get armed guards at doors | Letter

The shooting at Seattle Pacific University could easily have been any school in the USA. Two weeks before, there was a shooting at the university in Santa Barbara, Calif.

We think schools should have two armed guards with guns at the entrance of every preschool through every university in the country.  If not, the school violence will continue until we have to implement boundaries.

The night of the shooting one reporter called this person a gentleman. Also, they said, “we’re looking into whether he has a video or a YouTube to explain his inexcusable behavior.” No more glamorization of the bad guy. The Boston Marathon killer got his pic on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. They increased sales.

Enough is enough.
