Now, when some little snowflake steals the teacher's purse, she/he gets a handgun...AWESOME.

While most of the nation's students are enjoying summer break, teachers in a handful of states are studying not their fall curriculum, but how to take out an assailant.

In Ohio, Buckeye Firearms Association, a gun rights PAC, has launched a program to educate teachers on how to take down a gunman.

"We were mocked when we first said we wanted to teach this class," Jim Irvine, president of Buckeye, said. "People doubted if we could fill the class."


Yet more than 1,400 school staff members applied for the 24 spots first offered in late December, he said.

I just had a brilliant woman tell me this:

In my opinion armed teachers aren't the solution. How about we utilize some of our unemployed Veterans? They have more than the required training and would obviously need to pass all background and psych evaluations...

EPIC Pam...TRULY, it would solve veteran unemployment, AND scare the BeJesus out of the little Columbine/Newtown wanna-be's.

let's go back to letting kids play with marbles ... when the dumb ones choke & die, they won't grow up to be mass murderers ...
