Potential Targets?

In the interest of keeping our children safe, we limit access to school buildings. Many schools have buzzers at the entrances, security guards, and even the occasional metal detector.
Yet we use these same buildings, when they are full of children (voting always occurs on a school day), as polling places.

Whenever there is an election, we open the doors of our schools to hundreds of strangers. They walk through the buildings from dawn until dusk on the most politically charged day of the year.
Am I a little paranoid, or does this seem rather reckless in a day and age of terrorism? Especially in the light of the horror which occurred at the Russian school a couple of months ago.

Just a thought...Wouldn't it be prudent to close our schools on election day if we are going to use them as polling places?
