If teachers were given the option to conceal carry, schools would be a lot safer.

This is really pretty simple... if carrying a firearm did not improve personal defense then politicians in the UK wouldn't have bodyguards who carry firearms.

Apparently... in the UK there are two classes of citizens. Citizens who are important enough to be protected by firearms and everyone else who isn't important enough to be protected by firearms.

But the truly amazing thing is how the people who aren't important enough to be protected by firearms support their master's decisions without question.

If you read the Freedoms and Liberty thread, you wouldn't have a posted a meaningless post.
I guess we will never know. I can carry a firearm legally in the US without have to justify it to anyone. Can you carry a firearm legally in the UK without have to justify it to anyone.

Baa once for yes. baa twice for no?

Try around 1870
Shall issue licensing doesn't disarm law-abiding citizens.

It was only in 1920 that the British government assumed the power to deny someone the ability to have a gun merely because the government felt that they didn't need a gun.


UK - 1870-1689 = 181 years
Let's try:

UK - 1920-605 = 1315 years

"Ceorl, also spelled Churl, the free peasant who formed the basis of society in Anglo-Saxon England. His free status was marked by his right to bear arms, his attendance at local courts, and his payment of dues directly to the king. His wergild, the sum that his family could accept in place of vengeance if he were killed, was valued at 200 shillings."

"Fyrd, tribal militia-like arrangement existing in Anglo-Saxon England from approximately AD 605. Local in character, it imposed military service upon every able-bodied free male. It was probably the duty of the ealderman, or sheriff, to call out and lead the fyrd. Fines imposed for neglecting the fyrd varied with the status of the individual, landholders receiving the heaviest fines and common labourers the lightest."

Agreed, more guns isn't the answer.


Apparently, it was the answer since the killer wasn't stopped until an armed Border agent shot him to death...while 19 other guys with guns did nothing...

Meanwhile, that same week?

Uvalde....Attacker armed with AR-15 Rifle...........19 men with body armor ballistic shields and rifles.....did not engage the shooter.....19 kids 2 teachers killed.

West Virginia...armed mass public shooter with AR-15 rifle.......civilian woman with no body armor, her concealed carry pistol....shot and killed the attacker....no one killed...



West Virginia mass shooting stopped...

People like this West Virginia woman who stopped what could have become a mass shooting just a day after Uvalde.

Police said a woman who was lawfully carrying a pistol shot and killed a man who began shooting at a crowd of people Wednesday night in Charleston.
Dennis Butler was killed after allegedly shooting at dozens of people attending a graduation party Wednesday near the Vista View Apartment complex. No injuries were reported from those at the party.
Investigators said Butler was warned about speeding in the area with children present before he left. He later returned with an AR-15-style firearm and began firing into the crowd before he was shot and killed.
“Instead of running from the threat, she engaged with the threat and saved several lives last night,” Charleston Police Department Chief of Detectives Tony Hazelett said.
Officers did not go into detail, but said Butler did have an extensive criminal history.


West Virginia armed citizen stops potential mass shooting
=======


Some teachers, with training, act as a deterrent to the mass public shooters....and as a last line of defense when the government completely fails...

So your proposition that more guns are not the answer is just dumb....
