Should they be allowed to have a gun in the classroom?

If properly trained then yes. I would actually feel much more at ease knowing my child can go to school and their safety is ensured so that they may actually Focus on their education rather than worry if some nut job is going to walk into their school trying to harm them

Giving teachers a gun is a little over the top it wouldnt take long before a student stumbled on it and a 3 rd grader started shooting up the place cops in school would be good though

Put looks on the inside of all classroom and office doors. Lockdown could occur quickly if a problem arose.

I agree let trained law enforcement. A teacher could use the gun inappropriately their job can get stressful.

And just where will the money come from to pay law enforcement people? Schools can't pay teachers what they are worth and can't keep all now. Have to combine classes and cut teachers so even if you just had one guard at each school you would loose 4 teachers in order to employee the guards.

You could easily keep the firearm out of reach from the kids. And I say if the teachers want to get the training on their own time/dime let them have one.

You don't need a armed guard. Arm the teachers and install a 72" LED LCD with a PS3 at the front doors and the reclusive, game playing freak will be so enamored by the system that he drops his guns and immediately begins playing MW3.

I am a proud owner of guns and believe in the second admendment but as every one knows guns dont kill people people kill people and teachers are very great people in a whole but who really thinks that teachers are responsible enough to handle guns around our children

I have children in school and would not feel comfortable knowing their teacher may have a gun in their desk or purse or where ever. A student could find it and it could be a disaster. Tragedy happens daily in the world and I want my children protected for sure but not be a random teacher who may or may not use the weapon properly
yes

It's called concealed carry CARRY! That means you carry it on you. I have mine in my holster at all times. Nobody knows...No I can't dress like a hoochie momma or I'll be printing so I dress conservatively but cute. If something happens, I can draw it very fast and will protect myself, you and everyone around me. If I were a teacher, you could feel safe knowing that I don't have my gun in a desk or drawer or purse. We are taught where's the best place to carry. I can assure you, you won't find my gun in a dainty little purse nor would any teacher that is trained.

The only problem with having teachers armed is what happens if te teacher has a bad day and snaps?

Nobody here has given though to that aspect did they?

Honestly we do have resources to put security in schools. Military, reserves, national guard all could be better utilized to secure our schools. 3 to 4 man security military teams devised to rotate schedules of men to roam corridors keep all secure in every school. It could be developed and would work but we would have to count on congress to make it happen HA. I think each state lottery and all gambling establishments should be required to purchase and place metal detectors in every school. One way in and one way out for any visitors who will be questioned and reviewed at the door of metal detector by military reserve individual. School developed uniform dressing for kids (white shirts and khaki colored pants) uniform by color only. All kids wear white shirts of any kind and khaki colored pants of any kind. Staff wear black pants and white shirt. Every day all year when in school. Then you can pick out a non personnel and non student REALLY FAST! I think I will run for president and then I'm gonna decrease everybody's salary in congress and put them all on the reality plan! Oh if I was president the school uniform colors for daily wear would be federally mandated ain't gonna mess with local board members who want to vote on a potentially life saving method sorry. Oh and we would be doing some old school stuff! Old school is good!
