    Like I said k-12, teachers only. The kids shouldn't be allowed

  3. Schools are shooting galleries with no backboard

    Absolutely, teachers (and anyone) who obtains a CCW should be permitted to carry at schools. If the judges and politicians don't want the potential life-saving support that armed citizens may be able to provide if the SHTF, so be it. They already have some armed protection. But our nation's schools are defense-free zones, where any tool with a gun can find ready-made victims - and these murderers know it.

    Whether it's a student coming to gun down teachers or fellow students, or a freak off the streets, the best policy the schools can currently employ is lock down. How much better would that plan be if while in lockdown, a well-prepared teacher (or classroom visitor, for that matter) had weapon out and ready in case the madman comes in? Almost just like my saferoom strategy at home. As for universities, legal carry should simply be the norm. Accent on legal.

    It's not legal carry that creates the problem of innocent shooting victims. Might a legal CCW occasionally go postal? I guess, but have not heard of it.

    Just like the stellar safety record of hunters in the US (it's more dangerous to play golf or go jogging), CCW holders have an incredible absence of crime in our ranks that nobody knows about. We should find a way to better communicate that fact, and maybe the newsies will stop predicting bloodbaths and mass murder every time a state eases it's CCW laws.

  4. Maybe all teachers should be REQUIRED to obtain a CCW and carry at school, in order to protect our children better.

    Amen!

    I attend a university in Utah. Utah law specifically states that my school cannot prohibit CCW on campus. I express my appreciation by always excercizing that right.

I wish more states would look at New Hampshire and adopt its list of no carry places, which only include courthouses and places that are off limits under federal law.
    That might also be because of teacher's unions too. Teacher's unions love "Zero-tolerance" policies and other such leftwing foolishness.

    Don't forget about the staff too. Just because the guy who changes the air filters and works on the HVAC is only their once a month doesn't mean he should be unarmed. Or the school nurse, administrative support team, guidance councilor, or other staff members for that matter. It takes more than just teachers to run a school, there are a lot of behind the sceens people who you don't see.

    I hear in some schools they actually still TEACH hunter's safety courses in public schools.

    Gun-free zones and PFA's (protection from abuse orders) have one thing in common. A committed individual who doesn't care if they live or die will ignore them. My worst fear is that one day Jihadists in this country will go en-masse to a campus and kill a lot of kids before help can arrive.
