Armed teachers? On the way to school, you may as well give them a bottle of tequila on the way. This is not the way to solve this school shooting issue.
I don’t carry a gun. As a former a teacher for fifteen years, I was involved in one lockdown only resulting in one death. The boy took his life before entering our school.
I hate making light of this issue, because there is no light. I know teachers. If you arm them, they will end up shooting one another in the staff room. Teachers can be as dangerous as the troubled children we teach.
I once threw a ripe orange at one of my best friends in the staffroom. It hit him square in the forehead. Just think if I’d had a gun. You do the math.
Shootout at the middle school corral .
I especially enjoyed your perspective on teachers being
armed with weapons in schools.
