Generally I call myself a lib but on this I couldn't agree with Killa more.

Huddling in a corner never held any appeal to me especially when I was holding a 6 yr old trying to keep them quiet.

most of the kids here in Rolla know how to handle a firearm some maybe better than their teachers.

Guards are expensive and they can't be everywhere at once. RHS is huge even the ground level and if a student goes out and someone catches the door boom their in.

Let our principals take the training make them do it. Maybe Rolla should try a little bit of everything. With shootings going up all over If you can protect yourself why shouldn't teachers be able to protect your children. Or should we ban all guns and have them taken away?

I am totally pro second amendment don't get me wrong we just need an option

Is this a discussion topic at tonight's school board meeting? I think guns should stay out of school so that there isn't anything for kids to hurt themselves with.

I'm an educator myself and I'm all for it! I have a ccl and know how to handle a gun. The teachers would have to be properly trained and students would never know which teachers would be armed. That's how the Texas school does it.

...But even Hitler could see that the new gun wasn’t really a machine-pistol. Nonetheless, it needed to evoke the legend of the storm trooper. In the end, the Nazis decided to call it a “Sturm Gewehr,” or “storm rifle”– a rifle for stormtroopers. This was translated into English as “assault rifle,” and so the new type of weapon was misnamed forever. Assault rifles don’t have any particular connection with assault operations, as we’ve seen: they’re general-purpose guns.
It translates into English as Storm Rifle. I realize in 2007 they tried to redefine it. But find a real reference to that term prior to 1994.

Jonesboro involved middle school children. It wasn't included because age likely skewed the results of their rampage. If they had been adults or near adults, they would have likely been more effective.

Only two of the fifty states do not allow concealed carry under any circumstance. It has been proven that where concealed carry is allowed, crime rates go down. The reason for this is not that there are more guns, but rather that the bad guys do not know who is armed and who isn't. Anywhere that you see "Gun Free Zone" signs, such as schools, malls, etc., it is a safe bet that the intended victims, law abiding citizens, will not be armed. This is the reason that these places are targeted by shooters.
The solution is simple.
Repeal the prohibition on CCW in schools and other such places, and for the love of God, take down the gun free/fish in a barrel signs. Do not have any uniformed guards or designated gun carriers who are known by everyone to be carrying. Do not encourage or require anyone to carry a gun who is not comfortable with it. Anyone who chooses to carry must keep their gun on their person and out of sight at all times.
When the bad guys know their intended victims may have the means to fight back instead of cowering in the closet, they will think twice about their intentions.

it's very seldom that a student attacks a teacher violently enough to warrant carrying a gun. as a recent graduate from rolla high, i haven't heard of any cases where a teacher was actually physically assaulted. and if that were to happen, i doubt that every other student in the class lacks the integrity to step up. besides, teachers went to school to learn to teach and deal with misbehaving students, not so they could use a firearm.
guns in school is a bad idea.

As a high school graduate from way back. let me give you a word of advice. Do not take it personal because it has nothing do due with your character or intellect.
TIME will change your mind about several things in your lifetime. You are very young and life has a way of teaching you lessons the hard way.
