Dee - What school does your niece work at? My daughter just finished her student teaching at Crockett Middle School, and will be teaching at Tascosa High School.

Sorry for the thread drift.

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.

oldandslow I think that Florida did the right thing. At least there will be some protection in place if an incident does occur before the cops arrive. It isn't going to happen in my state that was taken over by ultra liberals in the last election. The bill to ban teachers being armed is passed, signed , and will go into effect in July in NM. They also did the same thing with a universal background check for gun sales. I feel so comfy now, all warm and fuzzy, because I've been assured that with these laws we are now going to be safe from gun violence. Snake oil, ya'll, from the left wing idiots.

Mule 11 I have often thought of that scenario. Where the good guy with the gun is shot by law enforcement or in the school after confronting the grease ball gets shot by law enforcement. Better them then the kids and Iím pretty sure most of us feel the same...

land_owner Soft and high attrition targets that become difficult (at best) to sortie are less attractive when highly protected.

What is more sought than a Gun Free School Zone ? Thank you very much (not) for that Democrats. Absolutely no resistance. Getting the gun inside of these has become routine and customary - plus the abiding and abetting Media is always there for "If it bleeds, it leads" coverage. Not getting shot in the early stage process of killing unarmed school children has heretofore been the easy route.

Now, with the possibility of never getting off the first shot, the soft target school zones have become hardened from within, but will forever remain vulnerable just the same.

It is wondered, and the legislation wording should speak to, if Teachers are allowed to carry on school property, will that permission extend to all CCL permitted licensees and whether School Zones will retain their Gun Free status? Certainly, in the event of a lockdown for an Active Shooter, unknown CCL's on campus are as likely to be shot by Teachers and police as the bad guy(s). When the smoke clears, it will be time to sort out the good from the bad, but by then, the deeds are done.

Mule 11 Anything that deters these creeps from going to a school is the right thing to do... After a couple of these creeps get shot to heil and back They will start targeting places that are posted with no gun signs. (Preferred sign of creeps and armed thugs everywhere)...

Dee Well I think any teacher anywhere should be armed if they pac the gear emotionally, and get some training. Dumbass parents, and pantywaist teachers be dammed.

When seconds count, the police are only minutes away. 🤔

bugeye People who are against it obviously don't care if a kid is killed by a thug.
They would prefer a police state without privately owned guns.

The Old Man I also favor allowing teachers to have the ability to carry a concealed firearm in the classroom for the defense of school children. I like the idea of extensive training in this situation, simply because it will greatly enhance the sucesses of protecting the kids.

"WHEN SECONDS COUNT THE POLICE ARE ONLY MINUTES AWAY"

The planets best, most effient, highly trained police force is of absolutely no help untill they get there, see the situation, and get to the guy(s) with the gun(s).

Training, phychological evaluation, ONLY because the schools are the place, and the ability to be willing to protect the children at all costs are necesary in this situation.
