I know many career educators and they're not all lemmings. I've shot with members here who are teachers and trust them implicitly.

Far better in a crisis to have armed immediate responders that the kids know and recognize as there beloved teachers...particularly in a high school where male students are more that capable of taking a full grown man off his feet "if they mistook him for a threat".

Our schools are like large extended families...far better for scared kids to get direction from trusted and armed adults rather than strangers.

Good point. I never thought of that.

I think I am the only teachers in my school that even has a carry license and owns guns. I would love to be able to carry at work.

You should see if that can become a reality. Since you are a woman and a gun owner/carrier you should try and educate some of your co-workers. One of my sons teachers gave a lecture today to the kids badmouthing guns and gun owners. I would love to ''visit'' him but know it would not be a good idea. The rhetoric since this last shooting is unlike anything I have ever seen. People need to stand up and fight for our rights. Hearing the things Im hearing from gun owners is disheartening. Many have already given up. We have to fight.

In my home town we have a High School Skeet Shooting Team. I love in the backwoods of Oklahoma but it is not uncommon for schools in this area to have Skeet Teams. No Doubt that there are teachers and administrators carrying at many of the rural schools in Oklahoma. It is part of our culture. You would be hard pressed to find a home in our community that does not have at least 4 or 5 guns in them. If you do find a home that is unarmed it is likely a person that moved to here from Commiefornia or some place of that sort. . Hunting and being self sufficient is part of our way of life.

Truly the only way to get peace is to plan for war. If the bad guys want a fight let them know that it is a lose lose situation for them. If they plan on killing themselves when it is all over we should be able to help them to that part of their plan before they kill our kids.

I have definitely been talking to the other teachers, especially the ones that say things like "why does anyone need an AR. They're assault rifles and are completely unnecessary". I calmly explain that I have one and that they are simply a rifle. I always invite people to come out and shoot with me so that they can see for themselves. I explain that I carry when I am not at school etc. I explain that the media is putting a negative spin on this. I personally have not watched any of the news coverage and wish more people would do the same.

Haven't read all the posts, maybe someone's already touched on this. Rather than trying to arm and train teachers and other civilians, why not veterans? Iraqi and Afghan vets are already highly trained, have multiple tour experience. It would put unemployed vets to work and would give we taxpayers added return on our initial investment in their military training. MHO, but it makes more sense to me than trying to train someone up from scratch.

At the very least, some school personnel should have training and access to non-lethals. Even a can of 'industrial strengh' pepper spray could have reduced the carnage.
