Yes, schools should require at least one teacher or security guard to be armed

Schools should be as protected as politicians.

No, this would increase the risk of accidental shootings

Yes, schools should require at least one teacher or security guard to be armed

I don't think it would be that bad, or that it would be a net loss.

Yes, schools should require at least one teacher or security guard to be armed

A security guard can be simply a deterrent.

And random teachers voluntarily carrying can add discouragement.

Yes. While lock-down drills may be helpful to slow any shooter in the school, a trained guard can stop anyone in the school if nessasary.

No, this would imply that armed teachers must sacrifice their lives to defend their students. Only in the military can we possibly require that of our citizens

Yes, schools should require at least one teacher or security guard to be armed

So, it's better for a teacher to die unarmed than to have a fighting chance?

@6SJTQXHfrom Mississippi  answered…2yrs

No. America's police system has already proven itself incapable of making rational decisions when under pressure, and could mistake a teacher with a gun for an active shooter.

I was a teacher. During stranger danger drills, I had to have my kindergarten students in a classroom with no windows and only one exit. We were made to sit in a dark room, in the corner, and be silent. I would have a tap light and try to keep these poor babies as calm as possible, the entire time I was thinking about...”what if someone were to be in this school with a gun...how could I protect my students...even if I laid in front of them and he shot me, he would then have an open shot for them”. All of this stress. We were sitting ducks. Would I want to carry a gun? No. How about metal detectors at the only entrance to the school?

@922GZZM from Kentucky commented…6mos

Personally, I do not believe that metal detectors will stop someone if they really want to hurt kids in the school. I don't think that metal detectors will stop them. If you don't mind, could you elaborate on why you wouldn't carry a gun even if it meant you would have better chances to protect your students?

Debe llevar armas privadamente que sus Alumnos ni por ningun motivo se de cuenta y mantener un chaleco ati bala unas granada de humo. Para detener una persona armada y no de una forma comprometedora. En un locker dentro de la escuela
