(SOUTH FLORIDA SUN-SENTINEL) Several mayors in Palm Beach County came before the school board Wednesday, asking the district to install metal detectors in every school for the safety of students.

“There’s no limit to safety,” said Mayor Thomas Masters of Riviera Beach. “Anybody can take a gun and go shoot into a school.”

Masters was joined by the mayors of Belle Glade, Boynton Beach and Mangonia Park. The group is spearheading a petition to put metal detectors in every school. So far the petition has garnered more than 100 signatures online.
