    I'd like to see a few school systems initiate a comprehensive look at a defense program.

    Ultimately, regardless of any Federal initiatives, State's rights will triumph and that is why I feel little trepidation towards impending 'blue ribbon' task force findings.
    I'm in favor of gun control -- I think every citizen should have control of a gun.

    I'm providing free training to the teachers at my kid's school and so far the response is great.

    The principal is considering some "modifications" to the emergency plan which now consists of "hide in the corner and hope you don't get shot". A plan I don't happen to support.

    Even if an armed teacher does not run toward the gun shots; they can stop the shooter as the shooter breeches the class rooom door.

    Exactly.
    That is what some of the opponents of arming teachers dont understand. Some of them say that they dont want the teachers to act as "cops" and then maintain that they stay unarmed,but we see how well that has worked for us.

    If a teacher did nothing but stay in class with their students and protect the door, that would be a serious improvement over what we have now.
    Even if a teacher took cover behind a corner and protected a hallway, that act could protect a whole wing, a whole section of the school.

    Considering the principal and psychiatrist (psychologist?) in Newtown ran toward the gunshots unarmed, maybe we (or others) are not giving them enough credit.

    Most of the teachers that I know would do that.

    On the other hand, you cant assume anyone would actually do that, I dont think they even they could tell you that they would.

    Even so, staying in one spot guarding a door with agun is better than what we are doing now.

    Hopefully, the state of Ohio will see fit to get rid of its current Criminal Protection Zones, which include all schools.

    Just saying if the one teacher who got shot protecting "her kids" with her own body had a gun to shoot the BG and did not respond as the principal and psychologist did there would be less kids dead. If the Prof that blocked the door at VT could have returned fire chance less dead there. As Hot Guns said; teachers are not cops nor should they be asked or feel they MUST run toward the Gun fire if they choose to do so; Lock and Load; Rock and Roll. At that point they need to remember "Two to the chest and one to the head" and maybe not do it in that order!

    Oh I agree with you completely. I'm just saying if they are willing to be heroes unarmed, as they seem to be, maybe some people should give more credence to the idea of arming them!
