Dixie Girl,

You have wandered smack dab in the middle of a very large problem here in America. On the one hand, you want to be safe, on the other hand you have certain rights as an American citizen and among those are the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures. The rub comes in with the word "unreasonable" some would say that the fact you are going into a governmental building (schools paid for with tax dollars)you give up your rights. Others say that is hogwash..rights are rights and cannot be given up, legislated away or removed by government edict.

There is an old saying that those who trade freedom for safety achieve neither. I happen to believe that is a true statement and would always choose freedom over the illusion of safety. But then I am an old guy and lots of people disagree with me.
