    Rep. Richard Henderson from Mt. Sterling says it's time lawmakers start talking about ways to increase security at schools in the Commonwealth.

    Henderson says the tragedy in Connecticut last Friday has he and many of his constituents calling for ways to make schools safer, including metal detectors, identification systems, and even stronger doors into schools.

    Henderson says he has no specific bill he plans to introduce in the  legislature next year, but says he'd like to see a task force put together to begin discussing such legislation.

    Parents in Lexington who spoke to ABC 36 say they're in favor of more security at schools, and say they don't feel their children are as safe in schools as in the past.

   Henderson says the biggest obstacle will be finding ways to fund such legislation. He hopes in the next session someone, if not himself, will find an answer.
