Allowing teachers who volunteer to defend the children under their control is a long standing idea. Better yet to allow all adults with concealed carry permits to defend schools. History has shown that they are as safe or safer than police officers.

In essence your proposal is to remove schools from the list of gun free zones? Would be better all around to just go that route...in fact just dump GFZ all together.

A FEW teachers have the will and the ability to do this. Most won’t and shouldn’t. However, the fact that SOME carry is in itself a deterrent, since the perp doesn’t know who is carrying.

As long as they pass a test for mental stability under stress. That should cull a few.
