Good. The idea that we need to be terrified of teachers having guns despite the fact that we trust them with our childrens lives under all other circumstances is moronic to say the least. Further more we also know for a fact that banning guns doesn't work, that if some one has intent to kill, it being also illegal to have a gun (or to bring one into a school) is not going to be a deterent and we know this because school shootings exist (albiet rarely). So the notion that some one might have a bigger gun and therefore you, or in this case the teacher and children, should have absolutely no way to defend themselves is again, moronic. Its about time we started doing this.
I am in favor of this concept provided that teachers who object are not required to carry firearms. A law enforcement respone can never be as quick as teachers who are already on the premises. Why would anyone oppose something that can protect our children?
Of course, there is some opposition from the left, because the only action acceptable to them would be a repeal of the Second Amendment. Anything that solves the problem without abolishing gun ownership is unacceptable to them. (Of course, if we make private ownership of guns illegal, criminals will continue to have guns and law abiding citizens will not; how does that solve this problem?)
