This is a hot debate that is going on. Teachers must protect their students. It is one of their jobs for life. We know that is is their obligation to ensure that children are not in harm's way.

Teachers should bring guns to school to protect themselves from their students.

hummm no teachers are not trained professionals. There is an extra risk involved then. What kind of example is this also for the childeren.

I would certainly argue that the schools need to be better protected; part of why they are so frequently targeted is because an attacker is guaranteed to have a large population of unarmed targets that are grouped together. I'm not certain that putting that particular burden on the shoulders of the teachers is the solution, however.

All we need is a whack job teacher having one bad day with a loved one or coworker and then go postal in their school. We already have teachers that are drug addicts, molesters, thieves and rapists. Sure, let's arm them as well. That'll end well.

School shootings don't happen frequently enough to where the requirements for being a teacher needs to also be trained to take the life of a psychopath. I am however all for trained security and police with guns being at a school.

If a school can't have a security guard or police officer atleast keep one firearm in a secure location in the office.

NO

If teachers brought guns to school they might end up using it on the students.

NO.

What happens if a teacher snaps and attacks students?

What happens if a student snaps steals the gun and attacks students?

What happens if a teacher hears a noise in hallway, mistakes it for gun fire, runs out with her gun and accidentally kills an innocent student?

What happens if a teacher isn't quick enough to get a gun out, gets killed and the attacker takes the gun and adds it to his arsenal?

So many things can go wrong.

I got little Timmy a handgun for Christmas and whoooo-eeee, I can't wait to pack it in his Punisher lunch-box!

Parents have to provide tools to our children to get-er-done when those lily-livered liberals come knocking.

From Timmy's cold dead hands, right?

I support the notion of having trained, armed security guards in the school and having those guards be required to undertake routine psyche exams.

Teachers aren't trained, and there are too many things that could go wrong
