Everyone is saying teacher with experience or licensed to carry a fire arm should. But what about the background checks?! And the need for all this gun trafficking to stop. Bringing more firearms into America and will make it even easier for people to get hold of them especially kids in the classroom. Not everyone with a firearm license carry guns in their home but making teachers get guns is just bringing more guns into people homes as well.

For people to want teacher to come equipped with guns I find ridiculous. If they are trained yes. But alot of teachers are not trained in that matter and should not have a gun that close to children.

Police Have No Duty To Protect The General Public?

Warren v. District of Columbia - 1981 – Two women were upstairs in a townhouse when they heard their roommate, a third woman, being attacked downstairs by intruders. They phoned the police several times and were assured that officers were on the way. After about 30 minutes, when their roommate’s screams had stopped, they assumed the police had finally arrived.

When the two women went downstairs they saw that in fact the police never came, but the intruders were still there. As the Warren court graphically states in the opinion: “For the next fourteen hours the women were held captive, raped, robbed, beaten, forced to commit sexual acts upon each other, and made to submit to the sexual demands of their attackers.” The three women sued the District of Columbia for failing to protect them, but D.C.’s highest court exonerated the District and its police, saying that it is a “fundamental principle of American law that a government and its agents are under no general duty to provide public services, such as police protection, to any individual citizen.” Warren v. District of Columbia, 444 A.2d 1 (D.C. Ct. of Ap., 1981).

Samantha, I think you got it right. If we are going to have armed Teachers, they better be well trained and go through some kind of re-certification every year or two to make sure they know how to handle a firearm around children.

They are trying to say teachers should carry guns, which I don't agree with because it can endanger the students more. God forbid a child gets a hold of a gun, there will be bigger problems then just invaders. In my opinion there should be undercover cops and security guards with guns in their possession.
