Ritter signs two school safety bills

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) ” Gov. Bill Ritter has signed two school-safety bills into law, including a measure that establishes a new Colorado School Safety Resource Center.

Ritter says no child, parent or teacher should ever have to endure that kind of terror again.
