Arming teachers with guns is THE WORST idea. Teachers want to teach. As a teacher I would never be able to shoot a student. My job is to teach peaceful conflict resolutions, not resort to violence. I absolutely want my students safe but putting a gun in the classroom is not the solution. BAN ASSAULT RIFLES! Get the weapons off the streets. There is NO PLACE or use for them in civilian life. Put a gun in my school and I will leave teaching.
