    Arm school employees? What practicalities are involved just in the narrow sense of just who we'd be arming?

    I don't think it's unreasonable to assume that the majority of school employees are of a more liberal bent - not saying they are all liberal, just that more, at least here in Alabama, are liberal than are conservative. If that's accurate, and again in my state it CERTAINLY is, then what are the practical obstacles to taking folks who are BY NATURE liberal and have no interest in carrying or handling handguns, and training them to responsibly and effectively assume the role of protectors in our schools?

    If beefing up protection at our schools has to be done, it would undoubtedly - UNDOUBTEDLY be a better option to start the "protectors" out as cops, run them through the academy, and then assign them to schools as school employees. Makes no sense trying to teach fish to be fowl when fowl can be had. I do not think that's necessary, but am simply offering it as an alternative to using teachers in that role.

    Look at it another way - what practicalities would be involved in trying to turn law-enforcement officers into high-school teachers?

    Hmmmmmm.
