first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion In regard to student protests/walkouts: This isn’t the answer. The protests won’t correct the problem of demented shooters carrying out their violence. The protests put many students in a group situation with no protection.Putting an armed guard in our schools won’t correct the problem either. It will make the armed guard the first target.Very often, the shooter is another angry student. Protests keep people riled. We need to change the thought process, not incite more violence.The schools are there to teach. Walkouts disrupt this process.Richard Van PattenGlenvilleMore from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristslast_img
