Your View: We need armed security guards in our schools

By Gary Lindsay, North Mankato

— There was a very important new article published in The Free Press Feb. 1, titled "Teen shot by student in Ga.; Prosecutor killed in Texas."

The article went on to say that the teen shooter was disarmed by an armed security officer working at the school. This could well have  been another Newtown massacre had the school not had the armed security guard.

Who knows how many lives this security guard saved. He is a hero.

This article should have made headlines on the front page. Instead, a small article buried on A3.

Proof, we need armed security guards in our schools.
