Safety Measures's insight:

We believe that everyone should be responsible for their own personal safety, including their family and property. These days, it is not odd to want to own a gun or apply for a concealed handgun license. This is because no one really knows about the possible dangers and threats that seem to lurk in every corner. We all seen the stories about how seemingly safe places suddenly become areas of violence. A law abiding citizen that is trained with a firearm levels the playing field against a criminal attack.

HARROLD, Texas (AP) -- In this tiny Texas town, children and their parents don't give much thought to safety at the community's lone school -- mostly because some of the teachers are carrying concealed weapons.

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).

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.

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.

Is online gun training OK? States split
USA TODAY
Colorado passed legislation outlawing all-online gun-safety training for concealed-carry permits; lawmakers in Oregon are trying to do the same. Virginia passed a 2009 law permitting online training.
Safety Measures's insight:

Online gun training does not give a student proper training compare to hands on training. I have seen online gun training classes and I believe it's no different than a dvd training video, very DRY!

 

Most people that take online courses won't know what to do when a gun jams or what to do when there is a squib load, hangfire, or a misfire. Quite scary!
