    I also fear that the present laws will get us killed. I am licensed and legal in over 30 states, but not in school. When I teach or take my Grand kids to school, if I get out of the car, I have to lock the firearm in the car. Even that is a potential felony as I am on school grounds (if detected). What to do? Always carry, Never tell.

    Also a teacher

    I too, am a teacher who would at least like to have my weapon in the car, if not on my person. I am in VA, does anyone know the laws as far as having the weapon in the vehical during school hours? Can they really take away my right to have my weapon off school hours just because I can't have it at school? There is no close parking off campus.

    I am currently a public high school teacher in Florida. Within the last week a student apparently brandished a gun at a high school across town from us, prompting a lockdown that came hours too late and wouldn't have helped anyone. Obviously, schools are well known as "Safe Zones" for dangerous felons and those that aspire to become so.

    My question is, apart from our government suddenly having an epiphany regarding the 2nd Amendment, does anyone know of any way at all (reserve police, etc) that I can get qualified to carry concealed at my school?

    I appreciate your taking the time to respond.

    Missouri allows for concealed weapons is vehicles on shool property so long as it stays concealed and is not banished.

    some laws only allow guns outside of 1000 ft zone of a school. So in case of a need to protect yourself or eliminate a threat, you better be one hell of a sprinter

    Well you can't carry in school and you can't pray in school. Next they will pass a regulation that you can't even bend over, put your head between your legs and kiss your a$$ goodbye when a killer enters the school.

    That's already the case in some places, given the reality of the legal shenanigans allowed to an attacker's estate or family.

    Not possible as I know of it but begin your part by taking some intensive courses in tactical shooting, self-defense that includes gun retention. Also, consider starting a PAC to discuss non-lethals (tasers) or even something like a shotgun with beanbags. Consider how you'll store, access and deal with various scenarios. Don't wait for the system to come to you.

    Also, if you accidentially kill someone's kid you may create a parent with nothing more to live for and you know what that means. So, it's a double-edged sword. Begin putting thousands of rounds down the line now.

    School grounds

    Most states allow you to leave you unloaded, locked firearm in your vehicle while you conduct business at a school.


    I am also a teacher, in Arizona. We used to have a loop-hole in the law which allowed teachers to carry if they had permission from the school adminstration.

    My crazy ex- threatened to kill me, was arrested for domestic violence, and kept stalking me. I requested permission to carry on school grounds ONLY ON WEEKENDS when kids were not present. If anyone is in the building, the alarm has to be turned off. Since he knows where I work, I'm vulnerable. Often teachers do lots of work after hours.

    My district superintendent said "absolutely not!" I got it in writing. If anything ever happens to me that school district will belong to my heirs.

    I no loner stay in the building more than a few minutes more than I am required. If something doesn't get done, oh well. If the principal gets on my case, I just tell her that I don't feel safe.

    So much for protecting the students and the teachers.

    Working is conducting business at school, but I don't think they see it that way.

    Did they end it or is your super just that ignorant?

    I wish you the best, I left the state when my ex threatened me, I was young and didn't know enough about guns to want to stay.

    Why would they want to protect the teachers, there is no shortage of us... right. Anyhow, I hope you do stay safe and I know what you are going through. I wish you the best. Is there any way you can work from home rather thatn having to go into the school? I know my district allows us access to the grade book and most other resources from home. It is a bit slower because we have dialup, but given the exposure you are open to...

    My super is just super ignorant. They're afraid of liability. They think I'd accidentally shoot a student, or some student would steal the firearm from me.

    As for work, I take home what I can, but bulletin boards, copies, organizing room, etc. all piles up. Someone complains about my desk being messy, I just repeat one of my favorite quotes: "If a messy desk is a sign of a messy mind, what is an empty desk a sign of?"

    My best bet is to relocate to a more pro-gun environment. Just have to fight my crazy ex to move the kids out of state.

    I refuse to be a victim, and I refuse to be bullied anymore.
