    It's good, but maybe shouldn't be mandatory. I think if a teacher wants to be get some basic firearm training and bring a concealed carry then more power to them! Gun free zones = easy targets. Why not armed guards at the school though?

    You would not last five seconds against an active shooter armed with an assault rifle.

    Accidents happen ... even trained police officers have accidentally shot themselves. I'm not sure why you want schools to be soft targets for psychopaths.

    As much as i disagree with white nationalism, that dont mean a white nationalist armed teacher is gonna go shoot up black students.

    I think the human race is superior to animals, but i dont go killing animals.

    They have gun lockers in Israeli schools with "assault rifles" so it's not a big deal. The Israelis have been doing it for years ... how many school shootings do you hear about from Israel?

    But he is not going semi to semi, he is going handgun to assault rifle. Even if both are semis, he's gonna be in a hell-a-hurt.

    Not really, you'd go looking for the shooter and all you'd accomplish is getting yourself killed and adding your handgun to his stash. Get real and stop thinking it happens like in the movies.

    The reality is, the one who shoots the other first is the one who gets the upperhand.

    That could be him shooting me, or me shooting him.

    Its not guaranteed hed shoot me first. Remember, its not the movies.
