My Daughter has a school project – writing a persuasive paper on the issue of teachers and guns. :D

She has chosen to support the position of giving teachers the option/right to carry (openly or concealed) at school to protect the children under their care.

Can anyone out there recommend some reliable and factual source material (articles, etc.) on this issue for her?

Particularly useful would be material on stats, policy and or other “factual” materials. I sent her to the NRA-ILA site as well as “Guns Save Lives” but neither seems to have a lot of material specifically on the “armed teacher” issue. As you can imagine, most MSM stories involve “feelings” on the issue and generally lack the facts for developing a solidly grounded position.

Thanks for the assist!

Testimony of handgun owner in Waco, TX who had to leave her gun in the car. Her parents were killed next to her and all she could do was wish that she could have legally carried her gun that day.
Mother of two who shot an intruder 5 time with a 6 shot 38 special in GA last month.

Get Airbrush Artist's account of how vulnerable and helpless he fealt with a bus load of kids and 2 of the girls he was picking up being accosted by a crazed man.

Look at the instances where a teacher, administrator, or student went to their vehicle to retreave a firearm and stop someone at the school.

http://guncite.com has a lot of information she can mine for her essay.

Try this:

This is a 70 page article on Gun Free Zones published in the Connecticut Law Review in 2009. It touches on armed faculty but mainly discusses how gun free zones actually fail to keep students safe.
