    My wife, two daughters, a daughter in law all have Texas CHLs and would protect their school children just as if they were their own family. Bad guys are never as likely to go where they know folks are armed as where we are prohibited from protecting ourselves and our families.

    My girls are safe, proficient and a "grizzly bear" about protecting their children both blood and those in their circle of protection. My children went to a rural school with only about 120 children in K-12 classrooms--and they were 40 miles from the closest Law Enforcement facility and dispatch. I would want them to be protected should some mental deficient want to harm them--what better way than arming those teachers and administrators already in the building.

    I am off of my soap box now!

    Frogman's school safety proposal . . .

    Following is a school safety proposal I sent to my Congressmen . . .

    "As a retired school teacher and a current NRA concealed carry instructor I think willing school staff members who are carefully screened and then thoroughly trained in the summer would be most effective. Administrators, teachers, custodians, who are willing and get the training should be allowed to carry concealed. They need to be very discrete about it. No one should know who is carrying and who is not. The firearm should be required to be carried on the person. Not in a purse or bag or in the desk where they might be accessed by unauthorized persons. The training for these people should be very complete, similar to that required by air marshals. They should be required to be re-evaluated and retrained every summer.
    I know in the small schools where I taught there were two or three staff members who would have been good candidates for this program. Custodians would be especially good because they move about the building freely and would not seem out of place anywhere in the building. Teachers spend more time in or close to their classrooms. But even so if something happens they would probably run toward the gunfire with something more than a book to throw at the shooter. Right after Columbine I spent a lot of time thinking about this. The feeling of helplessness the victims would have while a shooter walked through the room executing people is hard to comprehend. Just one armed staff member could be on the scene much quicker than law enforcement. If they could save just a few lives it would be worth it.
    The cost would be much less than armed security guards. The school staff members are already being paid. I would expect to cover the expense of their training and even their firearm and practice ammo. And maybe an annual stipend.
    I feel something along these lines would be very effective. I don't have all the answers, prolly haven't even thought of all the questions, but I think this would work!

    If anyone can suggest reasons why this wouldn't work then maybe we can come up with a workable plan together? I'm sure security specialists would be able to fine tune this into something that would be effective and save lives. Offer some suggestions here??"

    I voted yes.....if they are properly trained and monitored then they should be able to carry. Obama's children are protected by guns and why shouldn't our children?

    Hotguns:
    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.


    And you don't think if you pull a gun even in self defense your not gonna be sued in civil court ?

    Now That's A Flawed Thought Process.......Arkansas ain't New Jersey.
    With FL's SYG Law, you cannot be sued for a legal self-defense shoot...I'm just sayin'...
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    Florida is Great and so is Texas and Arkansas.....but this is the Northeast where I'm from......a different world entirely...ruled by lawyers, judges and political types......our state is over run with frivolous law suits....heck you can't even have a rubberband gun or sling shot in your possession here....and I'm not kidden'....check NJ Law Statutes.....sickening......but what works in other states may not be the solution for all states.....also, I would personnaly rather see a trained professional on duty in school with proper LE authority and not a Janitor or Teacher with a gun.....just my opinion.....otherwise here, Lawyers will be setting up satillite offices in school lobbies.

    At least we're all in favor of some type of armed security in schools to protect our kids........

    Bam! Heck yeah.

    For those who refrain or are thinking of voting no; just for your consideration I'll mention that this is a poll, not a senate vote. I can appreciate if you would prefer that LEOs be in schools rather than CHLs, CPLs, CCWs or what have you. But I think we're far more likely to actually see LEOs in schools by voting yes to this than voting no. The point is to help sway the tide in our favor generally, rather than let the ANTIs separate us and divide and conquer. I absolutely applaud anyone who stands on principle and sticks to his or her position, but in politics that rarely helps you further your cause. We can always write to our representatives later to give them our individual takes on how we want the bill they will be voting on to look like, but if we want to get to this point we need to stick together a bit.

    Didn't mean to offend anyone, just my 2 cents, ya'll are great, have a nice day, etc.
