Should teachers be armed in schools to protect themselves and students?

  • If they want to

    I think teachers should be able the option to bring a gun. Anyone who wants to protect themselves should. That is not to say the school should issue them gun because teachers are not law enforcement or security. But they still have the right to defend themselves. Teachers should be able to bring a gun if they want to.

  • It is a deterrent.

    Yes, teachers should be armed in schools to protect themselves and students, because no student would try anything in a classroom where there was a gun. These incidents could be handled with less loss of life if a person could react and at least try to shoot the offender. It would also make other students feel safer.

  • Criminals hate armed victims.

    I have no issue whatsoever with teachers who are trained in firearms handling and safety, being armed in schools. I much prefer it over armed police officers, as certain states (Texas springs to mind), seem unable to refrain from criminalizing children at the slightest excuse. However I see no reason to believe that a responsible gun owner and teacher is going to turn into a raving psychopath. If they should encounter one, i'd prefer they are able to do something about it, rather than just try to soak up a few of the bullets that might be headed in their charges directions.

  • Teachers are emotional and unstable.

    Just today in the local news, there was a story about a teacher who had finally been arrested for sexually abusing young girls over a 20 year period. Another story was about a school principal who was caught on video dragging misbehaving kids around by their hair. Are these the types of people you want to have access to firearms?

  • No They Shouldn't

    I do not believe teachers should be armed in schools to protect themselves and students. I believe there are many teachers who would be uncomfortable with a gun in the classroom and they would be even less comfortable using one. Creating policies to uphold this would introduce guns to an environment where they should not be.

  • Teachers should not be armed.

    Arming the teachers in schools creates an obvious police state. It is not beyond logic to think that armed security guards or even police officers is out of line. Depending on the location and history of the school, the level of armed guards changes, and that is fine also. However, giving every teacher a gun is the absolute wrong answer. Firstly, teachers are not soldiers, nor should they be. Secondly installing an accessible weapon in every classroom is providing opportunity for tragedy, not preventing it.
