How should teachers with guns be implemented? Should all of the teachers be armed? Or maybe have an armed guard and one or two armed teachers (volunteers) as back up?

Allowing those teachers who wish to carry do so would, ideally, necessitate the repeal of "Gun Free Zone" laws.

That in itself would give an attacker the same sense of uncertainty as concealed carry imparts to communities as a whole. (As opposed to the absolute certainty the attacker has now that there will be no guns available to stop him).

That alone is a major step in the right direction and doesn't cost the taxpayers anything.

All teachers that want to be armed. Wouldn’t want some liberal idiot waving a gun around in an unsafe manner.

Just the ones that want to be armed. Wouldn’t want some liberal idiot waving a gun around in an unsafe manner.

Simple: Any teacher, administrator, staff, or volunteer aide that wants to take on the responsibility of being an armed protector should be allowed and encouraged to do so.

Only teachers who want to carry and who can qualify. It is a right and license fees should be abolished for all as well as taxes on firearms, ammunition and gun safes.

The most practical way would be the installation of small locked gun cabinets in strategically located classrooms and offices. Keep a rifle in the locked cabinets and issue a key to approved and trained personnel. The weapons would not be obtrusive or subject to accidental discharge. They would just be another piece of furniture unless and until they were needed as a weapon. After all, these incidents are very rare and we don't need to prepare for a fast draw contest or a daily gunfight at the OK Corral.

That one is probably the best case. My school has a couple of resource officers around all day, but they cannot be everywhere at once. As for arming the teachers, let those inclined to bear arms do so. I’ve got some colleagues who probably shouldn’t, and I’ve got some who would do quite well at it.
