I hope I am wrong, but how long until the headline "Teacher shoots student after meltdown" appears?

The current government cannot stop school shootings. We accept as a nation that it is important to protect ourselves with a strong military and capable police force. So, in situations such as school shootings, where the military or police force cannot protect you, it is the responsibility of the individual to protect oneself and one's family.

If teacher is a trained gun user then I don't see the problem. Don't you trust a teacher, a government employee,with the incredibly important task of educating your children? Do you not trust teachers with your children for 8 hours a day 5 days at week?

How could it be a negative to have a willing and trained teacher to have an unloaded gun in a locked safe in the classroom in case of an shooter situation? Would you be scared if there was a security officer or police officer with a gun in a school?

Sane, intelligent and trained citizens, teachers included, should be trusted with guns.

Israel had a problem with school shootings. Until teachers became armed. Then they never had a problem again.

People get hit by lightning more often that those school shootings occur. If you're bent out of shape cause a single nut job shot up a school you need to get your priorities straight.

Who's to say there arent any crazy teachers out there? where are we more likely to have a situation... in a school where guns are available or one where theyre not?

very possibly one where they are not

armed robbery goes down along with gun ownership...perhaps it is the same with school shootings
