I'll chime in here. My daughter just graduated from college, and already has a job as a high school math teacher, in Amarillo, Texas. She is not your stereotypical liberal teacher, she has her own gun, and wants to get her CPL (she was one of the few republican voters in Marquette County, Michigan during the last presidential election). She also wants to carry a gun in the classrooom, with the appropriate training.
She feels that she is there to take care of the kids, including protect them. I wish more teachers, as well as parents and administrators, felt as she does.
My response to the parent that didn't want their child to be in a classroom with a gun, are they ok with their child in a classroom that's unprotected?
Another thought, in addition to aduquate training, the training needs to be ongoing, and the armed person needs to pass a true competency test.
Just a few rambling thoughts.
My niece is a principal in the Amarillo school district and is very pro gun as well. Maybe they will get together and get something going.
