Teachers should be allowed to have a safe in their room that only they have access to in case of a school shooting to protect children and themselves.

Yes, but teachers should have to pass a training and safety course if they desire to carry on school campuses.

@9HPWMMZPeace and Freedom from California answered…2yrs

Yes, but they need to be properly trained on the weapon they will carry and have regular mental checkups. There should also be annual weapon training.

The individual school should decide and share their policy with the students/parents.

Yes, but only after going through training and safety courses.

@CalebruzickaPeace and Freedom from Texas answered…2yrs

I think that if we take certain measures to stop school shootings from happening in the first place this wouldn’t be relevant. Like sensible gun control, poverty reduction, access to mental health, and other social services

@9HPQ892Women’s Equality from Wisconsin answered…2yrs

I think that If the teacher has had training and is mentally capable and trusted. they can but it could also scare students.

Yes, but only after the teacher has gone through a back ground check and had a mental stability check done and then trained to use said guns, and when not to use them.

@9HPDPK7Republican from Kansas answered…2yrs

Yes, but they must be deputized and provided advanced training in gun safety.

@9HPBW8DIndependent from Ohio answered…2yrs

Yes, but only if the property tax payers in the area vote for it.

@9HP9WWJSocialist from Pennsylvania answered…2yrs

They shouldn't be able to carry guns, but they should be able to carry some type of weapon like pepper spray, or a hand held weapon that is not a gun.

@9HP7HTNConstitution from Virginia answered…2yrs

Yes, but there needs to be a rigorous training course in which the teachers prove they know how to handle a firearm, and know how to handle a situation in which it would be needed to use.

@9HP54BLWorking Family from Wisconsin answered…2yrs

No teacher should have a gun. Only administration officials or security guards should have a gun.

@9HNZNSRWomen’s Equality from Illinois answered…2yrs

Yes and no because people make mistakes and stuff could happen but it could also be used for protection

@9HNZGTZGreen from Florida answered…2yrs

I feel like they should undergo excessive mental health checks to make sure they aren't unstable and should be punished incredibly severely if they are found threatening or misusing it towards a student but i feel like they should be allowed t with as many school shootings and things that happen now a day it sounds harsh and bad but if the teacher undergoes gun training and knows very very well how to use one then if they can stop the person about to shoot up the school without killing them that would be awesome even if the school shooter gets shot. If they can do so without killing him or her and stop hundreds of kids from dying than that would be awesome to give them the choice to have a gun at school.

@9HNVMPVSocialist from Missouri answered…2yrs

No, but they should have bullet proof vests on hand in the classroom

@9HNTYKHWorking Family from Texas answered…2yrs

No, unless the teacher has training with the gun and knows how to use it

Yes, Depending on where the school is located. if the area has a high crime rate then it should be allowed with at least one armed teacher.

yes and no. I would say yes because then they could protect students but then again a kid might use it on another kid or the student

@9HN5T6ZWomen’s Equality from Indiana answered…2yrs

@9HN2WDJWomen’s Equality from California answered…2yrs

Yes, but make sure to check and see that all personal have little to no criminal background

@9HN2RHLWomen’s Equality from Colorado answered…2yrs

If the students feels safe with that teacher then that is what really matters. Also I feel as though if the students feel like they can be more safe with that teacher having guns. Background checks should be done.
