    As a high school teacher, I'm all for it!!! I have my permit, and for most of the day I can't carry. I work in a pretty rough school with many students that are on probation or have been kicked out of other schools. I say, hells yeah!!

    I honestly do not understand the irrational fear of arming people. I do not know why after 9/11 we armed pilots. After a school shooting we armed Teachers. After a bus shooting we arm bus drivers...

    Let's just take the cuffs off and watch society sort itself back into a place of law and order.

    If I were on a plane with an AK and UZI and sawed off shot gun and a Glock with 100 pounds of c4 in my carry on; do you know what would happen? The plane would land at destination and on time.

    I am not interested in blowing up planes. We need to find people who are interested in doing crazy stuff and electro shock them until they can think straight and in the mean time, we all have the freedom to do what we feel necissary to protect ourselves, family, community and country.

    If you haven't already discovered there is not even an attempt made to stop people from voting more than once. They could use a cookie to at least make it a pain to vote more than once. As it is you can keep cliking the vote button and it just keeps adding to the number.

    Me neither. The times I've felt the most safe I was at the range with dozens of armed people all packing. Media hype and hoplophibic propaganda have taken their toll.

    We are past due time to take it back.

    They seem to have realized the problem. It appears to be fixed now.

    As a teacher, I have no problem with teachers carrying, but I also know, without a single doubt, that passing that law isn't going to stop school shooters.

    A school is a school. It's a vulnerable, open place where vulnerable, high-value targets are gathered together in big mobs. That's just the way it is.

    Don-

    No it wont stop

    But if there are going to be school shootings anyway I'd feel safer with my kids there knowing there is someone to throw lead back at the shooter.

    Same as anywhere, allowing people to carry wont stop shootings but it wil lgive them the means to defend when it happens and the ability to minimize the damage.

    I support the idea, of course.

    By "better" we are referring to a poll which supports our view. A better poll would be one using a random representative sample for accuracy. This is the first thing the antis point out, especially when it is split something like 47/53.

    FOX puts no limit on the amount of times a single address can register a vote. They do that on purpose because they count on people that support their viewpoint 9the type that watch FOX news) being gung-ho and going and voting multiple times. It usually works in their favor.

    I voted "yes" a couple of times and the count didn't change.

    Most of those who vote "no" are mostly non gun owners. Just my thoughts.
