    I heard about it on Facebook the other day and I think its a great idea. Question is will it catch on around the country.

    No it won't. Because every time a Texas teacher stops a mass shooting, the scum media will ignore it or lie about it, like they always do.
    But if one teacher has a nd, it will be sensationalized headline.

    Scum media will never stop their lies until Americans are disarmed.

    This is how I think it should be done! Just people at the local/state level deciding they what's best for them and their citizens given the situation at hand.

    The odds of an active shooter attack at that school were kind of low before the policy was put into place. I would say that it was about equal to the odds of it happenig in the school my wife works at, and my step-daughter attends. That doesn't mean it can't happen though. They are both at the same school I attended when my parents and I moved up here from NC. In the 3 years that I attended that school, there were 2 incidents of a student bringing a gun to school. Luckily, they were both arested without incident, but given the school is locted in a village of less than 2,500 people that is still a scary thought.

    If it was brought up as a vote for the district as to arm and train the teachers, I would vote for it, as would many of the parents in my district. My own feeling on it is, it takes the police 3 to 8 minutes to reach the school, and up to another 2 to 6 to reach the opposite end of the school in my town. How long would it take a teacher to pull their handgun, and stop the threat? Mere seconds. How many live would be lost while waiting on LEOs to respond? I honestl hope I never have to find out.

    Thanks for posting this Robo, It is good to know that atleast one scholl has got the right idea.

    Didn't they start allowing commercial pilots to have a pistol in the cockpit after 9/11? Makes sense. Seems logical for teachers too.

    I love this idea, police are just responders they respond to something happening they don't usually prevent it. By arming teachers and staff and training them as soon as stuff hits the fan the person has opposition it's not like he has the 5 or 10 or whatever amount of time for the police to get there and make entry.

    I had more than one teacher that was as crazy as a bed-bug. What will they do when an armed teacher kills kids?

    I had a shop teacher in junior high that carried everyday, we didn't find out about it til several years later. He had a heart attack in class and the EMT's found a snubby .38 in his coveralls pocket and a .45 auto in a drawer in his office.

    He was the coolest teacher ever, he had a handlebar mustache....lol

    Well, considering that they have to have a CCL, and get approval from the superintendent, that doesn't seem likely. Plus, if they are crazy enough to go on a shooting spree, I doubt they could keep a teaching job unless the school just completely ignored them (doubtful).
    There also a difference in being a little loony, and being crazy and homicidal. I had a few teachers that were loony, but I'd never be able to imagine them going on a shooting spree.

    I am highly against handing out guns in this manner.....

    HOWEVER, we need A LOT more armed security.

    If a teacher is crazy enough to shoot a kid during school, I can promise you that the legalities of carrying at school aren't going to stop them.

    its like putting up a sign to stop asteriods hitting the school. kinda pointless.

    allowing teachers to choose to be armed or not is the answer. i dont think anyone should be forced to carry a gun or not carry against their will.

    the problem i have with all this liberal stuff is the forcing of someone's values on another person. just because your afraid to carry a firearm doesnt mean more children should become a victim of a murderer because your scared of the boogeyman

    I have lived in Texas for the last 18 years and even I was (pleasantly) surprised at this. I agree that is we can arm pilots to carry on commercial jet liners that allowing select CHL holders to carry in school might not be a bad idea. But when are we going to look at the 800 lb gorilla in the room. There is one thing that all these shootings have in common, and it isn't guns. This is a mental health issue and we need to address the sick individuals who are in our society and need help. They need our help, their families need our help and the children of America need our help.

    There is a poll at the end of the Huffington Post article. At this moment 72.9% of those who responded think licensed and approved teachers and staff should have weapons on campus.

    I can't believe he just phucken said that libtard sh!t. I won't even address that.

    It appears several of you are very pleasantly surprised that in the face of our federal government considering stricter gun control, state governments are considering a more proactive approach. I know I'm very pleased, but somehow can't find it in me to be surprised. Kinda like I felt it in my bones that something like this was gonna happen.

    As far as Tennessee goes, I can almost guarantee you it won't happen in the more dangerous public schools, such as Memphis. I kinda wonder how many teachers there could even pass a background check to purchase a handgun...

    I'm gonna guess maybe another armed teacher would shoot them.
