No just a dumb idea that keeps coming back around every time there’s a shooting. It’s time we called it out for the total nonsense it represents. First off teachers have enough responsibilities now without adding deadly force. They would need training, rules of engagement, learning how to coordinate their fire to keep from shooting each other, more importantly training to avoid shooting a student, then there’s the problem of them avoiding getting shot by arriving Law Enforcement Officers (LEOs). Last but not least we need to understand that numerous trained, armed, LEOs often wearing tactical equipment and vest are gunned down routinely. More often they are alert and ready to respond. Last but not least probably what makes this idea one of the dumbest of all is it makes teachers the first targets of opportunity. Oh, and they will have pistols to face AR-15s. I could go on but I won’t.
