Would Armed Guards on Campuses Just Increase Liability? | A recent study from the National Center for Education Statistics found that the number of armed guards or armed personnel on school campuses in the United States is on the rise. Armed officers were present at least once a week in 43 percent of all public schools during the 2015-2016 school years, compared with 31 percent of schools a decade before. And this was before major school shootings in the last 18 months, including the mass shooting in Florida at Stoneman Douglas High School that ended in the deaths of 17 students and employees and injured 17 others.
