The 225 page report released by the NRA made many suggestions, including the one that stands out is the suggestion of having an armed guard at every school. Many school systems like Logan County High School have a resource officer on staff that carries a firearm while working in the school, but officials say though they're trained, they're far from armed guards.

"He's not there as an armed guard. He's there as a resource to staff and students both. He gets to know our students and they get to know him. They've built good relationships over the last few years." said Superintendent Marshall Kemp.

Kemp says the Logan County School System also likes to keep their schools small to ensure that every student is able to build a positive relationship with the staff at each institution.
