    Leave it to a liberal or a socialist to be unable to think something through.

    If the police showed up and told a teacher to drop their weapon...what do YOU think that teacher will do? Act like a shooter and start firing at them?

    If they even ask to drop the weapon, it only takes watching a few episodes of reality television police shows to see that they don't always ask.
    Either I'm right or you're wrong.

    I note a difference between the words "require" and "allow". I would not require anyone to carry if they didn't want to. I would allow adults to carry if they want to. No you don't get any extra pay. You pay for your own gun, your own permit, your own training, just like you pay for your own clothes, your own food, your own car. Telling an adult they can carry their gun at school is like telling an adult they can pray while at school. You have a right to wear a religious item if you want, that doesn't mean you will get extra pay for wearing it.

    what about the parents who object to guns being in school around their children?

    It was quite obviously a sarcastic reference, I'm quite surprised that anyone could've interpreted that as being a legitimate citing of information.

    I don't watch television, it was quite clearly a sarcastic reference in my opinion. I suppose now is the time to drop this superfluous and trivial discussion? On a happier note, I like your sig.

    by the time the cops enter, it would typically be over already.
