    Are these the same worthless,lazy,liburl teachers that are members of the same liburl lovin,money grubbin unions that people were whinning about and wanted to do away with just a couple of months ago and now you want to trust these same teachers and unions to carry guns in a class room. Now that's funny...
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    6. I propose we arm both the teachers and the students. Let these kids grow up with a healthy respect for firearms. Believe me, they'll learn very quickly that the days of bullying others are over. An armed society is a polite society.

    If a teacher wanted to kill her kids, there are a million ways to do it, including simply bringing said gun to school. Making up laws to restrict law abiding teachers isn't going to change anything.
    It's not a matter of the teacher using the gun to murder people! It's a matter of the weapon being secure. I think a teacher, someone not around presumably responsible adults for the most part, needs to pay extra attention to weapon security. I would recommend that the weapon never be seen, and if kept off-body then somewhere secure via key/print. Certainly do not tell students which teachers are armed and a teacher whose weapon is seen should claim it's a very rare occurance because of something outside school.

    I choose #2 and #3. I'm willing to make my position more palatable by requiring a basic safety certificate, or some such, as additional training before a teacher carries to class.
    Yeah. That's why I like the idea of dedicated security. A teacher, like everyone else, should be allowed to adequately protect themselves but their primary responsibility at school is to the students including their safety. To that end I prefer that a dedicated security contingent (and I prefer a volunteer model) should be the ones primarily involved in school security while the teachers focus on education. In the event that things head south an armed teacher could lock down the classroom and act as security for that particular room while the "regulars" work on stopping the shooter.

    We cannot expect, nor should we plan, for a teacher to maneuver and engage an active shooter. Carrying is enough responsibility. Still, I don't expect an armed guard at every school all the time.

    A school shooting just seems like to rare an indent to be this focused on.

    If a teacher complies with the laws of the state re his/her gun permit, that's all that should be required. The school would be asking for lots of liability if they either ran a training program or recommended one. If extra training is deemed necessary, it should be legislated and not a decision individual schools make.

    I don't support anything unless they've made efforts to install monitoring systems, improved security personnel - etc . . . arming a teacher is setting it up as a last-resort . . . Someone who's armed shouldn't be able to get into the ****ing school to begin with.

    I voted #2 as anything further is a violation of her human right to bear arms.

    Ideally, those gun safety courses would be provided freely by the government. And be mandatory for all citizens.
