The tragedy in Connecticut will convince communities across the country to cut other spending in favor of funding greater security measures, including adding armed guards at schools, said Peter Pochowski, the former executive director of the National Association of School Safety and Law Enforcement Officers.

But Pochowski says that won’t be considered enough… John LaSorsa, a former Secret Service agent and security consultant based in North Carolina, blamed the plague of shooting sprees on the decades-long national trend away from institutionalizing most mentally ill people. “They must be in a controlled environment with no access to the outside world,” LaSorsa said.
