What is there to debate? Even if every gun on the planet were confiscated and melted down, the nut jobs would go into a classroom and kill 20 kids with a machete, or throw five-gallons of gas in the door with a short fuse, or highjack a bus and run it off a bridge, or .... Arm the teachers, custodians, and administrators if they want the responsibility and if they can pass the background check and the course. No gun zones are an invitation to target practice to a freakbrain.

Who's going to watch the teachers, custodians and administrators. What's to stop a strapping football player from disarming a 100 pound English teacher?
