I was too since they would not take NO for an answer. They were slightly toasted but had a DD. Bundled up and even took my blanket and really enjoyed it. Had my one glass of bubbly to toast the year in. Quite tasty. If I hadn't been on meds I might of had 2 or 3 glasses. lol<quoted text>
Hi AB. I'm glad your friends thought of you.:)
I think that if a teacher goes through the training to be qualified to carry a concealed weapon they should be able to carry in schools also. I do think that maybe they would need some EXTRA training and EXTRA screening considering they would be carrying around kids. I believe that in a lot of the cases fewer lives would have been lost had somebody been prepared to take the shooters out. Another thing, if a school (or other place) is a "gun free zone" that is just an open invitation for some nut to come in and murder helpless people. They don't need to know who else is carrying a gun or where they might run into them. That is just my opinion.
Those teachers in San Antonio were learning hand to hand combat, not how to shoot.
All that training would be good for them, but where would they keep them locked up, in their desk? The students shouldn't be subjected to armed teachers. I think there is a better way to confront the problem when you think of how many schools are out there. The threat could come from inside the school with the weapons available to them from their teachers. I don't think it would work. School security shouldn't lay on the teachers. Hire some, put in detectors, and let the teachers TEACH. JMO
