Con

no, because if the teacher got mad, then they could hurt the child.
ShouldBePresident96

Pro

That is not a really good argument. Teachers could potentially already hurt a child if they are angry. They could hit them with their hands, a pencil, a pen, a ruler, a yardstick, anything! If a Teacher is prone to extreme violence, such as harming a kid, when they are angry, they should not be a teacher in the first place. Teachers are already expected to protect their students at all cost when there is a threat, why shouldn't we arm them where they can better defend their students or themselves?

Another reason why it's a bad idea for teachers to have guns.

"Georgia teacher arrested after firing gun in school, police say"

Just a bad idea to arm them.

Even most teachers don't want guns...

Honestly not interested in a 5 round debate on the topic, but am interested in the topic if you can promise no forfeits.
