Tough hop. They are using Sandy Hook as an excuse to eliminate something they've been trying to do for YEARS. These schools/people should be ashamed of themselves. These are tax payer buildings. Get over it and move on to something important.

I don't blame them. The fewer unauthorized folks that are allowed to wander around our schools, the better, IMHO. Until we figure out how to keep any tom, dick, pr henry from buying guns without a back ground check...lock the doors.

Anyone else see the irony? You need to show a photo ID to enter some schools in order to vote but requiring a photo ID to vote? Heavens, we can't do that.
