do you want your kids to at a place thats gun free zone that is pron to a low self defence school? or a place that is well protected?

Con

Teachers should not be armed; I do not want my children to be in a school with armed teachers. School should be a safe environment, and teachers should be able to spend their time and energy teaching, not playing Rambo. Plus, teachers don't want to be armed [1][2], so why don't we let the education professionals run the education system while we as a society focus on the root causes of school violence, such as poverty [3] and easy access to weapons [4].
