I think the teachers should because since i'm a kid, i would feel more protected if my teachers had a gun to protect us if needed! School shootings are stupid and done my odd people so we should be protected if nessessary

See teachers are just people they don't have the training to do what Police Officers do now I don't know about where you live but in Texas almost every school has a law enforcement officer there a large proportion of the day. Teachers are just people they lose things and forget stuff now imagine a gun free school now of course this may seem bad but think about if every school everywhere had 30+ loaded weapons there all school hours.

Many people get bullies in schools and many just get in physical altercations many kids being abused by bullies often think about killing the person who caused them the pain and suffering. (I'm not one to stereotype but for the sake of making this easy to explain I am going to) The "Nerd" group are often the ones bullies because the pursue mental fitness instead of physical and in doing so sometimes becomes over friendly to his favorite teacher and they are around each other more because the teacher knows and respects the student more. Now said "Nerd" is getting bullied and finally get tired of it knowing he can't withstand a physical fight he goes the easy way his teacher (example) Mike has spent plenty of time with the "Nerd" and he carries a weapon with him for the protection of the students now the "Nerd" knows the combination to the desk drawer that the gun is locked in gets it and kills 10 "Jocks" the bullied him.

"Availability of weapons

Another one of the causes of school violence is the fact that weapons are more readily available than they were in past years. There are some estimates that in the early 1990s, as many as 250,000 guns were brought into schools across the country on any given day. Many teens know just where to find guns in their homes, as well as ammunition. Additionally, it is possible to acquire knives and guns legally and illegally in many areas without too much trouble. Combine this availability of weapons with the hormonal changes going on in teenagers, and the stresses of modern life, and it is not terribly surprising that school violence is a problem."

If weapons could be found all through a school I will bet my life school shooting will go up because a large percent of the shooting end with the shooter committing suicide so if there are more guns that will just lead to a large fire fight with maybe even 15+ guns all firing at 1 time the amount of lives that could be lost by making a school a war zone is in my opinion much greater.

War zone deaths-----Counts of deaths reported in newspapers collated by projects like the Iraq Body Count project found 174,000 Iraqis reported killed between 2003 and 2013, with between 112,000-123,000 of those killed being civilian non combatants.

School shooting deaths-----Since 1980, 297 People Have Been Killed in School Shootings.

Your choice what do you want to be a part of? I choose school shooting but I'm going to the marines anyway so not that matters.

Why did you post such a useless idea and not even back it up with literally anything but constant forfeiting.

"becomes over friendly to his favorite teacher" I meant for all this to be gender neutral so Read that as His/Her please.
