I completely agree with the notion of fast tracking vets and allowing them to carry while teaching. Pretty sure we do something similar with the current Air Marshal program by using LEO retirees.

My bigger point is that while these are good ideas, waiting for permission by anyone currently in a classroom is CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE!

Looks like we aren't the only ones thinking this way, let the negative words about Texas start flying but I'm sure folks have noticed, we don't really give a hoot.

With training, I think that is an excellent idea.

I say schools should post warning signs on the doors stating that the faculty is armed. Whether they are or not is the risk that the bad guy has to take.

Normally the cowards off themselves at the first sign of LEO. Even hearing sirens will cause them to turn the gun on themselves so signs could very well help if they definitely are unsure.

Well hopefully they will off themselves in a place where the kids will not see it.

LOL I wasn't implying they would see the signs and immediately shoot themselves but that it might deter them.


Wait! I'm slow I think you meant something other than killing themselves now that I think about it.

Hey, if the signs would do that, so much the better.

Help matters? Don't know if you missed it, but the media are not even on our side. This is most likely another nail in the "assault" rifle coffin lid. That's it, everybody out of the pool, some idiot just took a dump in the deep end. Personally, I don't own anything semi-auto. I am too old and fat to police-up my brass, but fellows, I'm hurting for you

God Bless Texas...

Line up 100 State Senators you can be sure that by the nature of there profession, they ALL have there heads up there arse's...however, bark the command "Pull Your Head Out Of Your Arse"...

...you can be certain that the two from Texas will be the first and only ones to succeed!

East Coast Senators would reply in a muffled tone...No, it's cold out there and I don't have my fuzzy ear muffs.

CA Senstors would say...No, it smells better in her than on the streets of LA.

Illinois Senatore would say...but, but, All my friends are in here...

I think that this is the smartest plan I have ever heard of. Educational people, who are not only armed, but required to be appropriately trained, and licensed to do so. And not only armed with weapons, but education in ways to deal with confrontations that don't respond with deadly force first.
