A possible solution to school shootings
Stricter gun laws, background checks, psychiatric diligence … put them all together and you still won’t eliminate the risk of a crazy person somehow getting a gun into a school. You might lower the risk, but you won’t completely remove it … in my opinion.
I believe most school districts are doing whatever they can now to keep the guns out. A classroom ought to be one of the safest places on earth.
Regarding arming teachers; I don’t see it as an answer … either for stopping a shooter or deterring one.
Would you honestly be more comfortable knowing a teacher had a gun in your kid’s classroom … or your grandchild’s. Personally, I would not.
I also wonder what the liability insurance will cost for the first school district that allows teacher guns?
If the math teacher’s shootin’ iron accidentally falls out of his pocket and shoots one of my grandkids, my first call after the hospital is to a lawyer.
Thank about it.
