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.
