    At least two New Jersey school districts this week put armed police guards at the entrance to public schools in the wake of the Connecticut elementary school massacre.

    In Marlboro Township in central New Jersey's Monmouth County, armed guards were on duty on Wednesday to check every child, teacher and visitor as they arrived and left any of the district's eight schools, which serve children in pre-kindergarten through 8th grade.

    Further north, in Passaic County, the Totowa School District on Wednesday also started using armed police officers in its two elementary schools, according to local media reports.

    And everybody dissed the NRA for suggesting armed guards!!

    Both those school districts are in rather "affluent" parts of NJ.

    Yeah, the PTA ponied up. Shame it's only for those that can afford it.

    So are these still "Gun Free Zones"?

    Why are they searching those who are leaving?

    I am all for having armed guards, but I have never been a fan of mandatory searches.

    Makes sure the kids are submissive for later in life...they will think it's normal for their 4A rights to be violated.
