Warren County Sheriff Wants Armed Guards in Schools

A long-time area sheriff says it's time for armed guards in schools.

Warren County Sheriff Bud York says ever since the Sandy Hook school shooting tragedy in December 2012, that resulted in 20 school children dying along with six adult staff members, he has felt that armed guards posted at schools will deter school shootings like the one a week ago in Florida that took 17 lives.

York who requires his deputies to check in at schools daily, wants to see school districts post armed guards.

He says a trained officer will pull out his gun if he sees trouble and protect the school and the students and teachers in the school.

York has asked for a meeting with school administrators to discuss his idea on March 7th.
