    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!

    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.
