    School Principals Should be Armed!!

    Now we know what happens when an unarmed principal tries to tackle a zombie with an AR-15. If this principal had the guts to do this unarmed, what do you think the outcome would be if this lady had a handgun??? Times are different now. Principals and teachers need to be armed to send a message to the zombies that schools are hardened targets. Carry concealed so the kids can't see your strap!!!

    IMO

    Do people say "your strap"? I'd personally like to bring back "gat" as a saying.

    It would take more than just the principal, more like the entire staff. And then is the staff going to be "required" to be armed? Who's going to provide the training? What about those members who don't like guns, don't want guns, refuse to carry one? There is no simple answer.

    Sounds like that is one school district that has the RIGHT idea! A whole lot more should adopt this plan. When I was a kid in school, most of the male teachers were WWII vets and knew how to handle firearms. In fact, back then, most dads taught their kids how to shoot and hunt when they were kids. I grew up in a city, but I learned how to shoot, how to handle firearms safely, and most of my friends did too. And that was city kids! Country boys ALL grew up with guns. On the farm, they were tools and a normal part of life.

    Shame times have changed so much! Nobody even dreamed of shooting up a school or mall or theater back then. Of course, kids learned to respect authority and teachers and adults back then too. And they learned that not everybody "wins" and not everybody got a trophy just for participating and not everybody got to play. They learned to face adversity and deal with it! And our generation grew up just fine! We learned to take responsibility for our actions, to work hard, and to not depend on the government to take care of us! OK, off my soapbox.

    - Let the principal do what a principal is supposed to do... run the school. I'd rather have someone who's sole responsibility is security be armed.

    as someone who has kids in highschool and middle school i agree ,properly trained administrators/teachers should be armed. some on each wing of school at least. at our school there are quite a few teachers that are ex-military im sure they could be up to the job. rd

    I'm fine with having a hired security guard in addition to allowing other school employees to arm themselves, such as allowing teachers, admins, coaches, etc. to be armed if they present proof of training (CC permit or other relevant training certificate). Making it optional would allow the anti-gun libs (who flock to the educational realm) to opt out while allowing anyone who wants to defend themselves and the children to do so.

    Ditto for lunchroom cooks & bus drivers. IMHO, they're all a lot more calm & level-headed than most of the the teaching & administrative staffs. They haven't had a much "old-school" toughness ...educated out of them.
    There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.

    Very true, and it would be great. However, the other side wouldn't care how many lives were saved if any were lost. Never let a good tragedy go to waste, right?

    As I recall, a principal with a paddle was scary enough, I can't imagine the ones I had packing heat!
