Lyme and Old Lyme and East Hampton are the latest

Connecticut communities choosing to arm the guards who guard our

children. East Hampton's Board of Education voted last night to arm

its guards -- board member Michael Buck arguing that if a school shooter

is out there and sees an armed secrity guard, he might pick another school. Lyme and Old

Lyme also voted to go ahead with armed guards, despite oppostion from

most parents at their hearing. Said resident Eric Olsen, it's a sad state we have to

even consider it, but at the end of the day we do want our children safe.
