For this debates sake, we will assume it is a concealable pistol and that said teacher has received background and psych tests before receiving the firearm .

It is a pleasure to have this debate with you. I accept the challenge. I do not think that teachers be allowed to carry fire arms in school.

Unfortunately I have accidentally sent this debate out twice and have had it accepted both times. No matter however, I will debate you either way. I assume that the main overall reason why you do not believe that teachers should be armed at school is because of the possibility of them going berserk an shooting their students. This may seem frightening, however, there has never been a recorded incident of such a thing happening anywhere in the world http://www.infoplease.com...
As the information clearly lays out, nearly all school shootings are at the hands of students whom attend that school. If you payed close attention, you may notice that teachers were often on the list of those murdered, along with the other students. If a teacher would be armed, then such incidents could be prevented, or at very least contained. And before you get the chance, many would argue that this job could be just as effectively carried out by a police officer on duty during all schools hours at said institution. Schools already have officers patrol daily and these massacres are still constant. Just as in adult life, they are not effective enough to prevent all of these disasters.
