"I think our teachers are there to educate and not to panic and put themselves in that type of position," said Board Member Kathy Duke.
This is an utterly ignorant statement.
No one is asking these teachers to carry a gun against their will and then go hunt down a madman who is roaming their schools. I agree this is a stupid concept.
What is being proposed is that folks who ALREADY have licenses to carry and willingly choose a gun on their person to any OTHER place it is legal to, be legally allowed to carry in a school. So that they may defend themselves if confronted with a deadly threat, and by proxy, the students they teach.
At this point, the only option they have to stop a threat like this is to step in front of the shooter and absorb bullets. Then the threat moves on to slaughter others.
the idocy of our elected leaders amazes me to no end many times.
