    I'm an atheist, so I take complete responsibility for my own protection. However, from what my parents believe, god allegedly doesn't want his followers to just be weak victims who don't defend themselves. He instead gives them the power and courage to do it.

    Church shootings have happened, and some were very, very bloodly. A church shooting at my parent's church wouldn't get very far, and more people would be able to come home to their families. That's all that matters.

    These are colleges. I am well aware of this for colleges, which is comprised completely of adults. My brother conceal carries at his university in Oklahoma.

    I thought it was obvious that we were talking about TEACHERS in K-12 SCHOOLS. Apparently not.

    Read again. The link of SD schools is K-12. The link on Oregon is K-12 schools. etc.

    I just never carry in church. It did not seem right but I have not thought it through. I think you might be right.

    I just went through it again. Links 1-3 are only about colleges, zero mention of K-12. And link 4 for some reason says "Http/1.1 Service Unavailable". Perhaps you're thinking about different links.

    By all means, feel free to post them.

    It's one thing to place police officer or trained armed guards in schools but I think it's a pretty bad idea to arm teachers.

    I think a better idea would be to place the armed guards in a security office and set up a fire alarm-like system to immediately alert everyone if there is an intruder.

    It works for me, and I even quoted the 6th and final link of Oregon.

    I have, and you're response is to claim computer problems and outright ignore 2 links.

    There are more dignified ways to lose an argument.

    Link 4 isn't even about k-12. Link 5 is about colleges. And link 6 is actually about Oregon, and yes it says K-12.

    Not that any of this matters, because it will never catch on. As I stated, half of the country is full of idiots that don't want guns period on school grounds. I prefer to take something other than the most extreme position, and you would rather attack me than the other half of the country.

    Yes, ABSOLUTELY to armed qualified security. NO to teachers unless qualified (highly) and then not open carry in class. I believe the security officer also could be a counselor for behaviorial issues over all, thus costly school districts little.

    Having a gun is not extreme.
