i think they should because think of this a robber comes in the school and is starting to kill children 1 classroom at a time and he/she comes to your classroom dont u want your teacher to kill him/she? just think of that situation please take a moment to think.

Guns are dangerous and immature students will want to play with the gun because they think its cool so they might end up injuring themselves. Having teachers armed shows that violence and weaponary is okay and it sets a bad example for kids and kids can get scared and lose trust in their teachers if they have guns with them all the time. And if teachers prefer not to carry it around with them because kids are scared of them and they put it in something like a safe, if a bad guy goes into the classroom, the teacher cant just be like "Oh wait a second, let me get my gun out of the safe to shoot you first." Teachers are only supposed to educate, not go through training to get rid of bad guys. It's expensive for the training teachers will need to handle guns. Instead, schools should have a better security system or have special trained people to roam around the school to protect the students.

That's because the school didn't have good security to protect the students and teachers. Teachers can also be hurt in the process of trying to get rid of the killer. And the killer probably had better weapons because theres a big chance that a teacher wouldnt bring something like a machine gun or a bazooka to school just in case.

well i think i am right and i am right what about sandy hook elementry school 20 kids and 6 adults died because they did not have a gun on them to kill the killer and if they did those kids would still be alive today

Debating isnt about whether you think your right or not. Its what the audience thinks. And you shouldn't say the same thing over and over again (circular reasoning) , like about the school shooting, since i already told you that if the school had better security then the students and teacher wouldn't have died. What has happened is in the past so you cant change it anymore. Instead you should think about how you should improve in the future. You can do that by not arming teachers, but hiring special trained people ( like cops or gaurds) to protect the kids just in case. We can use the money on the guns for teacher to use on hiring gaurd- like people for school. And if a bad guy knows that a school has protection, then they will be less likely to attack it.
