In response to the Sandy Hook school massacre, National Rifle Association leader Wayne LaPierre has called for placing armed guards in every American school. Is this a good idea?

49% 1 Excellent idea. A shootout at the school door is better than unchallenged slaughter inside of the building.
21% 2 It is worth investigating, but Im skeptical. For one thing it would cost lots of money and schools dont have a lot of extra money.
0% 3 No opinion.
29% 4 Lousy idea. Rent-a-cops are not the answer to a gun-sick society. It isnt practical to lock down our schools like prisons or military bases.
Top Story: Brain injury focus: New law requires concussion class for coaches.
A year before a new law goes into effect, Rochester Community Schools is working on teaching athletic coaches to spot signs of a concussion.
Indiana became the first state to mandate that high school football coaches get concussion-recognition training. The 2014 law also requires that a player wait 24-hours after suffering a head injury before returning to a sport.
In a change from previous procedure, the IHSAA has mandated that physicians must sign physical forms by hand and include their medical license number on the physical forms starting in the 2016-17 school year.
The IHSAA said that changes to its Pre-participation Physical Evaluation, or PPE, form come after a recommendation from the Indiana State Medical Association's Committee on Sports Medicine.
