(Umm, you mean should not, right?)
As a clarification, this is American teachers:
I'd like to ask you a question. What are we doing to protect our schools? Lockdown drills aren't enough. An Arkansas principle says""The plan we've been given in the past is `Well, lock your doors, turn off your lights and hope for the best,'" (http://m.nydailynews.com...)."
He's right. There is nothing people inside of the school can do. They pray. They hope that when help comes, they walk out of the school alive.
To be frank, there is no way school shootings in America will stop. Outlawing guns is not the fast fix you make it out to be. Americans have the right to bear arms guaranteed by the second amendment. Outlawing guns won't stop criminals from getting ahold of them."
Too many have died for Americans to be apathetic any longer. According to ABCnews.com, from 1992-2007, 323 students have died in school shootings. Before you say that number is outdated, think it through. The kids aren't coming back to life. This number only gets bigger. How many will have to die before you agree something more has to be done? 1,000? 2,000?"
Police take time to respond to calls, and more time to access the situation and enter the school. In Sandy Hook, that time was 9 minutes. 26 people died already. What if Victoria Soto, a Sandy hook teacher had been armed?
A child's life is more valuable then money. Which would you rather have? A dead sibling and an extra grande? Or a sibling that's still alive?
How many will have to die before you agree something has to be done? 1,000? 1500? If you ask me, 323 and counting is enough.

Well this debate was worthless, the con says that they should be armed so why is there a debate?
