I agree, The only people I think are qualified to handle this responsibility are police officers. I think its the only way as a parent I would feel safe with Guns in the School. Side not here : Even prison guards don't carry guns inside the prison, and for good reason. Also I would love to hear what the police department here in L/A would say about this.
They can't be serious. Arming teachers is the worst possible way to deal with the safety of our children in school. Its an accident waiting to happen. A teacher with a bad day or that has a mental break down is an extreme liability. Murphy's Law would be in full effect here. On top of that can you imagine what the increase in insurance costs will be for the school system if you allow something like that to happen, and who do you think is going to pay for that ? The Tax Payers that's who.
I respect teacher for what they do , I have family that are teachers, one of them is in special education , but what in the world qualifies them to carry fire arms around our children, they are not Police officers who have extensive training in tactical response. Some may be Ex or active military in one form or another but that still doesn't qualify them. This is our children we are talking about not Air port security. As a Father of 4 children with 3 of them in the school system, I for one will pull them out of school if this happens. Arming teachers is an unacceptable and irresponsible solution for this issue. And those that would even consider passing something like this into law need to have their brains examined and their jobs removed, Use some commonsense for once people.
Listen I personally don't like guns, but that being said I don't disagree with your right under the 2nd amendment to carry them. Our rights as Americans come with the responsibility to not abuse them. The only problem is that we cannot allow those that own guns and those that want to see teacher carry in schools the opportunity to abuse this right. The price for that is to high.
