Almost all of these school shootings have one thing in common.....the shooters were not the legal gun owner.  Typically the shooter illegally obtains their gun from someone who did not properly store it. 

 

I agree hitman, whomever owned the gun should be held to the same criminal standard as the shooter.  If someone gets my gun they have to first break into the outside of hte house, then break into the windowless room they are locked in, then they have to break into my safe.  Oh you wanted ammo, thats in the smaller safe locked inside my large one :smileywink:.

Instead of arming teachers with weapons how about the schools create more programs that focus on mental health? That's the main issue in all of these school shootings.

How about that AND letting teachers, if they want to, arm themselves (provided state law allows them to carry).

I'm all for that but do think whomever is watching the cameras should be an "armed security guard".

 

This won't protect from a kid bringing in a gun in their backpack though, the system in that link is flawed in that one area.

If a security gaurd whom is armed monitors the camera in the schools office then that is cool. But teachers being armed themselves is a bad idea.

I don't think arming teachers is the answer.  It's impractical, and most likely ineffective.  In an active shooter scenario, the teacher is responsible for staying with their students, locked down, in their classroom.  Armed police officers would be a much better solution, but that's not going to happen because money is a much bigger concern to schools than safety.  The chances of a shooting incident happening are remote.  They can't even afford textbooks, much less pay the salaries of a couple of cops who may never be needed.  Why so much talk about arming teachers?  Armed teachers would most likely provide their own guns/ammo/training and they are already on staff.  Additionally, gun manufacturers and media love to talk about this controversial subject because it is free advertising and increases ratings.
