Yea I do. But it won't happen. The Tyrannical Government wants all the sheeple to live in fear.

There's at least one school district in Texas that has already gone that route. The board's theory is that this particular school is 30 minutes away for the Sheriff's department, and right off a major highway in an isolated area, so if an attack were to take place, it could be very, VERY bad.

They do have rules on it. Several different classes plus a Texas CC permit.

I think all schools should have at least one or two trained teachers or principals conceal carrying.
I'll add to this...

I think that there should be one armed teacher per minimum of every 3 classrooms, and I think the cops should be left to do "real" cop duties, such as patrolling the neighborhoods of their communities, investigating crimes, and occasionally helping little old ladies cross the street, instead of the ones I've seen in schools, just hanging out, sitting on their butts and not doing squat. At least until little Johnny brings his nerf to school, then they get to arrest a 6 year old child and carry them downtown for being such a deadly ****ing menace to society.

Security guards would be more effective. Most teachers are not experienced with guns. In urban areas you might not find a teacher in the entire school. If teachers are qualified and want to carry that is fine but requiring any educator to carry is a bad idea.

I am a teacher in Illinois. I would carry at school if I could. I teach machining and our CTE is in a different building from the main high school. We do have a full-time officer but reaction time could be anywhere from 30 seconds to several minutes depending on where he is in the building. I would want teachers trained and very proficient in firearms handling/marksmanship.

security guards are worthless. they dont arm security guards in schools.

The Red Lake massacre was an incident of spree killing that occurred in two places on the Red Lake reservation in Red Lake, Minnesota, United States. The first murders began on the morning of March 21, 2005, when 16-year-old Jeffrey Weise killed his grandfather and his grandfather's girlfriend. He later drove his grandfather's police vehicle to Red Lake Senior High School, where he shot and killed seven people on the school campus, one teacher and an unarmed security guard, and wounded five others. The shooting ended when Weise committed suicide.
the only thing that stops this sht is armed citizens with guns. if you want lots of kids to die make sure cops are the only ones who have guns. this wasnt in the news because a psycho killed a cop to get the cop's guns. gun control only ensures that innocent people become victims.

get rid of gfz's let ccw people carry everywhere

Bingo...anyone who does not think teachers can be trusted with gun should think about the fact that you already leave your little crumb snatching snot factories in there charge for several hours a day.

As Jon stated, eliminate GFZ's and allow CCW everywhere!

No I don't ... they need to be focused on educating the youth, not protecting them. We have plenty of returning and retired vets who are more than capable of protecting our children.

Place them in every single school in the country, dressed in plain clothes, with access to a firearm and remove the "gun free zone" signs ... then lets see how many of these piece of **** fucking cowards decide to shoot up a school :cool:

Um... Dog... I've heard there are 100,000 K thu 12 schools in the US. To be effective you'd need at least 2 vets per school.

Let's assume they work for an average of $38k per year...we are talking about 3.8 million per year to get started. :eek:

Now I'm sure we could easilly find 10 times that amount simply by eliminating the department of education...but...we'd need to make the cuts first.

Actually it's $3.8billion ... ;)

here is $750million to get started,

The Embassy of the United States in Baghdad is the diplomatic mission of the United States in Iraq. It is located in Baghdad and is home to the Ambassador to Iraq. Ambassador James F. Jeffrey is currently the Chief of Mission.
The Embassy of the United States in Baghdad is the largest and most expensive of any embassy in the world. At 440,000 square meters it is nearly as large as Vatican City.[1] It also employs 15,000 people and cost $750 million to build. The Embassy opened in January 2009 following a series of construction delays.
and some more funds to continue the program - http://costofwar.com/

Unfortunately, I think that armed personnel in the school is an idea whose time has come. Perhaps not each teacher in the class, but as suggested, several personnel, perhaps administrators who aren't in the room to accidentally discharge a live round.
I do disagree with some who seem to think that it would be a deterrent. A nut intent on suicide is not going to be deterred by the fact that he might get killed. Any police officers in the group are familiar with the problem and danger of "suicide by cop". So, armed school personnel needs to be a low key quiet strategy.

Absolutely think teachers should carry, and be trained. Gun free zones invite slaughter. They should have cc parents that live near by as responders as well.

Outlawing any gun is just opening the door to complete loss of second ammendment.

I truly think allowing a TRAINED and certified teacher to carry in school would've eliminated the douchebag from murdering all those children. At the least, two teachers per school, like I said.

At first glance, it's an idea who's time has come. On the other hand, are we talking all schools? Don't know if it would be a good idea in some of the high schools around here. I see armed teachers possibly getting overpowered by students set on getting the gun. MHO you understand.

http://www.proudtoserveagain.com/ It's a program called Vets to Teachers, government helps train vets to be teachers if they choose.

The beauty of CCW is no one knows who has guns. And if students take a teachers gun, there's other teachers with guns.

I think you would be able to find retired LEOs or veterans who would do some volunteer work a week at time. Rotating volunteers to watch over the schools.

The students shouldn't know who carries and who doesn't.
