Q: Should teachers have guns?

If so, what sort? Flintlocks or pistols? AR 15s even?

If your answer is yes, should the concept of armed teachers be exported from the USA?

If your answer is no, why not? Only good ppl with guns can deal with bad ppl with guns.

I assume American police officers are selected much the same way as in other countries, part of the selection process being personality tests to ensure they are the type of people who can keep cool and disciplined in a crisis and put their extensive training into practice. This is important when dealing with something like a shooter in a crowded school.

 

Teachers aren't selected the same way and they don't have the training police do. I can see a well intentioned but terrified teacher wildly shooting across a crowded room (assuming he wasn't the first victim -being the armed teacher in the room seems like a good way to catch the first bullet in your back to me), trying to take out the shooter before he can kill more kids and maybe adding to the body count.

 

Is having an armed teacher there better than having nobody and waiting for the police or whoever to arrive? I don't know, possibly but it doesn't sound like any kind of solution to the problem, more like a hopeful attempt to minimize the damage.

It seems to me like people have decided that psychos will continue to be allowed easy access to guns,they will continue to be able to take them into schools and the best anyone can do is hope a teacher can stop them before they kill too many students.

No, we'd be the first targets and if would be attackers made plans they'd already say to themselves "ok teacher firstly than the rest."

So noooooo way

How about putting armed security in schools instead?

The US 2nd amendment needs an update to modern times... Teachers should also have grenades, portable rocket launchers and landmines. To keep the children safe. As the founding fathers intended.

A gun ban would work.

It works in other places.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
