Finally, something we agree on, sort of. What is your solution?
I was at the airport at 4:00 AM this morning. If the same process were applied to getting kids in school, homeroom would almost be in time for last period.
I've given up, I say arm all the students.
Well, that didn't take long. I guess you don't care enough to find real solutions that will work. BTW, arming the students, who have the maturity, skill, and ability to respond (if such a unicorn high school student even exists) is a solution I would be willing to hear more about. I think for MOST cases this would be a very bad idea, but I could be convinced... Give it a shot, who knows who else may be convinced. You may even be on to something. Worth exploring at least.
A high school dropout, with a desire to teach, could do a better job than what we have seen the last several years in many of our public schools.
Many military retirees have had instructor training, and have taught very technical subjects to many students. Their presence in the schools would have advantageous effect on school discipline in addition to the deterrence effect of being armed.
Students all have a 2nd Amendment right to carry. Doesn't matter what we think.
Innocent students are already getting killed, and a little training can easily prevent armed teachers from being confused with the gunman.
I would not advocate that armed teachers seek out the shooter. I say that an armed teacher in a locked classroom with his/her students is a better option than just hoping the shooter will go somewhere else.
I also advocate the five minute defense plan for all schools.. Buildings should be built or modified to hold off an armed intruder for at least five minutes. That is usually enough time for the police to respond.
I would much rather go up against an AR-15 with a handgun than with a stick of chalk. If I survived the first 30 rounds, he wouldn't survive reloading.
Are you kidding?
Sandy Hook.....he shot himself 5 minutes after starting when he heard the police sirens coming.....this last shooter stopped at the 6 minute mark. The Texas church shooter had been shot and driven off by the NRA instructor with an AR-15 long before the police arrived, and they were 7 minutes out from the last stopping place of the killers vehicle.....
