I teach in Texas and would definitely go for this program. As for all the hand wringing going on in the press over teachers having guns, I have a solution. Deputize any teacher who can pass a rigorous training regimen and allow them to carry weapons UN-concealed, along with a badge. Now, obviously these wouldn’t be regular sheriff’s deputies, since they wouldn’t have arrest powers nor could they detain anyone in a traffic stop. I think that this would have an immediate positive effect in schools.

I think the press is ridiculous as are teachers who would refuse to protect the young ones in their care with deadly force.

I would require law enforcement training, badges, and weapons for all new teacher licensees. The old ones will slowly work out of the system.

Then, if you walk into a school to harm the little ones, you’ll know before you arrive that you’re entering an armed camp legally able to use deadly force.
