NJ School District Adds Armed Guards to Schools Following Sandy Hook Shooting

Just weeks after the deadly Sandy Hook Elementary shooting that left 26 dead, a Marlboro, NJ school district has decided to place armed guards in their schools in an effort to keep kids safe.

However, the decision is sparking differing reactions from concerned parents.

"I think it's a good idea after the shooting up in Connecticut," one father told reporters. Another, though, disagreed. "...Instead, we should be getting guns off the streets, and that way we won't need the armed guards in the schools," said dad Nathan Goldwasser.

The school board says the guards will only be placed in the schools for the next three months while the board finds a more cost-effective way to enhance school security.
