    ......IMO, once a civilian displays a gun especially in a school environment, the civil suits will follow....put a cop there behind a desk and be done with it.
    That is a flawed thought process.

    A civilian(teacher) displaying a gun would only do so in a life threatening situation...no different than you or me.

    I know all of the cops around here that are school resource officers. It's not often that you catch one of them sitting behind a desk.
    FWIW...several of the SRO's have expressed a desire to me for other teachers to be armed. Every little bit helps.

    In reality, just the possibility of having armed teachers would probably be enough to stop any incident before it got started.

    Cowards dont like opposition. That is why they choose target rich environments such as "gun free" zones.

    Take out the one copy and there goes the armed defense. The concept of teachers being armed is you have multiple defenders. Potential bad guys would be less apt to try their shenanigans when they don't know who or how many might be armed.

    I don't think he meant it in such a way that he, you or I won't be sued in civil court, but the fact that, if WE can be, what's the difference between a teacher, or you, or I being sued? There is no difference.

    I'm 100% for armed teachers. It should be completely optional. I would be against a district issuing firearms to every teacher and forcing it upon them (not that that would happen). Carrying a firearm isn't for everybody. But I'm sure there are more than just a few teacher who would be very willing to carry a firearm while teaching.

    Yes. I'm for allowing any responsible, law abiding person whether it's teachers, janitors, or even parents. It should be voluntary. And get rid of the "gun free zones".

    You mean Cities where they are cutting back on Street LEO's because they don't have the money,there was an LEO at Columbine and he didn't prevent nothing,the BG's planned for it,when you know if and who is armed that would be the first person you take out,

    Armed teacher msnbc poll. HIT THIS!

    Absolutely yes. Most teachers probably don't need to carry, but why deny them that right if they want to? I have a buddy that teaches and coaches and he is outstanding with his Glock 19. Why should he be denied the right to carry it on the job?

    A number of properly trained and qualified teachers, janitors, and parent volunteers will be just as effective, maybe more so, than a sole LEO. And they can be granted the same legal protections as cops get. It works in Israel. It could work here.

    Absolutely.
    We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. -

    As to civil suits in such situations what can be done is use the law many states have for concealed carry permit holders, if the shoot is justified one is barred from filing a civil suit. As to law suits against the school/government entity give them the same immunity afforded to law enforcement.

    I personally do not believe armed school security should be law enforcement since they are sworn to enforce all laws broken. These officers are better served out in the public not holed up in a school. My suggestion was to hire the many military personnel that no longer have a job due to serving their country. They would be employed(hired and fired) by the schools and paid by the government(via Homeland Security, BATF, or other agency). They would have to undergo screening and firearms training/shooting and periodic appropriate refresher training. Before you say where is the money coming from, they can take some money from the War on Drugs since that isn't working, soon they troops will be coming home saving 110 billion a year so there is another resource to tap. With some further tweaking with my suggestion its a completely viable idea to keep America's children safe.
