    No body is saying they want to force all teachers to carry firearms in school. How about we allow those teachers who are willing and who already have the training CCW to carry while on school grounds, (and carrying being concealed.)

    Why not?

    After hearing 'something must be done' ad infinitum --I truly wonder what is it that should be done?

    I suppose that is why I expressed an opinion. I don't have an extreme opinion but I do have some concerns.

    ~~~~~~~
    Last there was an exceptionally 'intense' food fight in a middle school. The administration warned the students that severe consequences would follow for those who participated. 100 or more chose to take the risk. In such a situation there is the potential for emotions to cloud judgment --I suppose that is my main concern.

    10 students face permanent suspension and several are facing criminal charges. fwiw.

    You don't care but you want to give your opinion which in my opinion is about the most stupidest thing anyone can do.

    Something as to be done even if it hasn't worked in the past?
    How about enforcing current laws
    Allow teachers with concealed carry permit that are willing to carry on school grounds the opportunity to do so.
    How about doing away with gun free zones?

    ok--you have expressed your opinion.

    I suppose I 'care' at some level. It is not clear to me at this point what would be best for schools.

    Those in positions of authority seem to agree that such decisions should be made at a local level. I am fairly certain that the leadership of my local school district will not be discussing this in the near future. The school system is in trouble, on probation for mismanagement of funds and they are now seeking a new superintendent, after replacing a corrupt superintendent 3 years ago. His trial will begin this spring.

    What may work for one school system might not be effective for another.

    I apologize for failure to use the quote function.

    I could have a similar exchange with a family member. No matter what I said I would be 'wrong'. Futile to do more than agree.

    I can't adequately discuss 'doing away with gun free zones' or the other topics you suggested.

    Thank you, it's one of the little things that aggravates me about some on here they'll use the quote function one time and when you make a point they'll stop using it.

    Why can't you? You have an opinion and how your opinion can be carried out and used don't you?

    I just forgot --to use the quote function.

    It is too complex of an issue for me.
    I know I am not a person who should have a gun--anywhere. I taught for many years and can only think of a few people that I ever worked with who might be able to respond appropriately in volatile situations and therefore have some concerns about how this sort of plan could ever be implemented.

    Some of my middle school students should have been in high school and would easily have been able to overpower me.

    In areas where 'illegal guns' will always be available --I don't know what can be done. That is about as far as I have gotten with all of this.

    It is 'significant' to me that this is not being discussed locally. Too 'hot' of a topic I can only assume.
