    Agreed. There are no winners in situations like this. Only questions and pain for all involved.

    I don't know what that is, but I support allowing anyone who has a CCW to carry on school grounds.

    Like teachers and staff - as well as anyone who walks onto campus?

    So we can turn our schools into an all out warzone - yeah, smart. I don't think that would help - it would just worsen our problems. Just because someoen HAS a permit to carry doesn't mean they know how to handle it or keep it out of the hands of others.

    Either you supporting that 15 year old 8th Graders be allowed to have a CCW or you are just making hay. Which is it?

    I just listened to it, and wish that I hadn't....How sad.

    I've been to way too many incidents involving violence and children in my lifetime - that's why I didn't even open it.

    If we want a safe environment we should encourage all teachers and all administrators to carry weapons. Perhaps we could give them an additional monthly income in each month they can show they range qualified and carried their weapons.

    Just because you give a person the ability to carry a weapon, it doesn't mean they will have fortitude to use it. There is a reason they are in education, not the military/police. It would make more sense to have police patroling the school.
