Texas schools adding armed officers

Part of President Barack Obama's gun violence plan unveiled Wednesday suggests giving schools grant money to hire more armed officers.

It is an expensive move some Texas schools are already making.

The Plano Independent School District near Dallas has a plan to add private armed security guards on all campuses -- not just middle schools and high schools.

Sinton ISD made it a done deal this week. The school district near Corpus Christi is not only adding armed guards on every campus, they are also installing fingerprint readers in school buses to scan every student before they step on board.

In Central Texas, the Hays Consolidated Independent School District will be discussing the issue in the coming weeks.

Leave it to Texas to take things into their own hands.

The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, still in effect, was passed to prevent U.S. military personnel from acting as law enforcement agents on U.S. soil. Once you start using troops to enforce safety and the law, you end up like Mexico.

my question is why hasnt the suggestion of national guards being used? we already pay taxes for them and it would be jobs for them besides training and companies hiring them and then them leaving for training or war.
