Guns aren't the problem...it's the mentally ill foks that are the problem. Nice to see that most folks understand that. With the proposals that are being made, i wonder if the president's body guards are limited to 10 rounds?.....duh...

it's already done in Texas, school districts are allowed to have their own campus police dept. and smaller districts that can't afford it give letters to carry CHG's on campus, i'm a bit of an ass to say this, but if it's good enough for Texas, then it's good enough for the rest of yall,............God Blessed Texas,

I don't especially want teachers or school administrators to be armed, but I don't want to close off that option. I see a number of problems, including traininng and liability issues. What if a teacher accidentally or deliberately shot a student?

Still, if a teacher has a license and is competent to handle a gun, I see no reason why he or she should be banned from carrying a gun in the workplace simply because it might "scare the little kiddies if they saw it" or some such nonsense. If we really believe that, then police should be disarmed so they don't scare the kiddies.

I'm going to talk to my kids' teachers, encourage them to get their CPL so they can carry on school grounds. I wonder if they are even receptive to it. Won't hurt to find out.

Done, let them enjoy the 2A at work and at home. Federal workers should have that option as well.

Shotguns with a laser sight and rubber shot kept in principals or ass. principals' office would be acceptable to a lot of school boards here in Texas.
