Being that public school teachers are among the most incompetent people in the country, I would feel less safe.

Interesting question, but not relevant ~ after all the big crime problem with teachers occurs in the upper grades where some of the women are engaging the boys in unlawful behavior.

As long as they wore those molded plastic clamshell holsters I doubt there'd be much reciprocity.

In September 2014, one of these armed “teachers” will let off a few rounds in a school, possibly killing someone,

The Dmocrats will blame the Republicans and with that the House will flip to the Democrats.

Game over.

If killers don’t know... if teachers are armed or not... If potential killers KNOW schools are NOT gun free zones... I would feel safer.

Crime went down in Florida after conceal carry was passed - it wasn’t that every citizen was packing - it was that the creeps didn’t know who was packing...

The question should be, would you feel more safe or less safe with a big sign over your child’s school that says “UNARMED VICTIMS HERE!”

I will say less safe, you ever meet a bunch of teachers? They are a wack group of people that want to work with children and their crazy parents!

When we started the Flight Deck Officer program we were dealing with a group of folks that were ready to defend their cockpit so that the aircraft didnt become a 700,000 pound cruise missle, they already knew how to manage danger and deal with stress......

For pete sake look at the teachers union! Do you want to arm them to protect children? Wait until you dont pass the next milage vote.

As an aside I am sick of hearing about Teachers, Police, Firemen, and “Health Care Professionals” as if they are the people that made America great, that these are the working people, that they care for US!
We were a great country because we have resources and built things with them. Thats what made America rich and that is what made us powerful.
The reason these “Service Workers” are talkied about all the time is a two fold problem with America. 1st that is where the unions are still strong and leaders pander to unions. 2nd Nobody(mostly) wants to be responcable for themselves, I need some one to teach me, I need to call this 911 number to be safe, I need health care so I dont die.
We are all going to learn, it a question of what. Police and Fire come after the issue happend, and as to health care we will get sick and die.
Lets get America back to be about making things, thats why inventors and inavators came here in the first place so they could get their ideas built and make the dream a reality.
None of us conservatives will admit that there is a direct coralation between the gross number of firearms and the number of bad guys that will become worse bad guys by using firearms. With ruger alone selling over 2 million units last year, 1 million by last May, how cant we see we are in an arms race with ourselves.
We will as conservitives to a man say I do want a firearm to protect myself and it is my right.
And yet we wonder how we lose states like California, its because all of our leaders are wooden teeth republicans...old men that need powered whigs.

“I’d rather let the custodian and maintenance staff have guns than most of the teachers I’ve seen.”
I was a college teacher for 30 years, and I don’t think half of the teachers I met could pass any sort of mental health or stability test. I certainly wouldn’t want them armed.

less safe....

teachers should not be armed...ridiculous....what makes them so superior that they carry guns around children?....

not their education thats' for sure...

If the creeps and nutjobs even thought that anyone (teacher guard) at the school was armed, they would go someplace else for their insane deeds.

Absolutely! The gun free zones are a magnet for these psycho bullies.

If they thought for one moment that they will face armed opposition they will move on and forget it. Gun free zones are the magnet that draws them to kill defenseless individuals. Gun free zones in America will serve the same purpose, only to wannabee tyrants and greedy political elites who want the freedom that our society has.
