That could be true the problem is that he would just of went somewhere the children were not protected. School bus-shopping mall-and numerous other places were children gather.

I personally believe that Newtown was possibly a hoax. But that's a conversation for another thread.

Tell that to the grieving parents.

Disagree. More training = more effectiveness. If you miss your shot defending inside your home you might shoot the dog, in a classroom? Think about it. These folks can't be fumbling like Barney Fife

Agreed. I don't think there are many qualified teachers to be honest, not at all saying there are none but personally with my daughter starting school in the next couple years I'd like to KNOW the people carrying guns around her are sane, trained and experienced.. Nothing trumps experience in a situation like this IMO.. Because if Barney Fife shoots my daughter she will be as injured or dead as if some sociopath shoots her, and I'll be just as pissed and sad.

Agree with that. The hysteria over guns in Connecticut since the school shooting has many teachers in a panic mode over discussion on this subject. They are concerned that they may at some time be required to carry a weapon that they don't want to be responsible for and they fear unqualified people may overreact in a questionable situation. There are some teachers with law enforcement and military experience that could be trained to perform the security function with some minor additional training. I believe it should be legislated to require an armed security personnel be present in the schools. Ideally, someone in the administrative office would have that training and a weapon for security purposes.

I think the idea stated by the OP is an awesome one! I totally agree.

Having said that, here is another take: My wife is a teacher. She thinks this is a horrible idea. To start, she's mostly anti-gun, but she also does not seem to think much of security of any type. One of her points is, "Where are you supposed to conceal it? She thinks that the gun could be potentially taken off the teacher by a student, or if a student gave the teacher a hug, they might realize the teacher has a gun. She also doesn't think much of the "every school should have an armed guard" thing. She doesn't think even cops who patrol schools are armed. Seems to be a can'y have guns around kids theme.

I think these problems could be alleviated by training........

In the area or fitness and self defense 'something is better than nothing'.
How many people do you know who carry a gun and no idea how to use it in a self defense situation. The anti'gunners are the ones who try to portray 'us' as a bunch of idiots who only carry a gun so we can find someone to shoot. I agree with training IF it is not mandatory as a requirement to exercise our RIGHT!!!
A teacher who is carrying a PPD is all we need. Let then exercise THEIR RIGHT without a bunch of bureaucratic BS!

Ahhh, apparently not. My wife teaches kids 4th grade and under. For them, (the kids) to hand out random hugs, and other physical contact is common.
