Here's a question to ask anti-gun nerds. If there was even a slight chance that an armed killer might bust into a two-room school house and start shooting, would you seat yourself in Room A where guns were banned, or in Room B where they were welcomed.

I'll take Room B.

The Wild Wild West? Imagine yourself as a student, your teacher has a gun holster. I want my teacher to to look like a cowboy bandito with boots and spurs too. I guess that would keep the classroom quiet and orderly, lol.

Should I be joking about this? Eh, why not.

It sounds to me like the hooligans or hoodlums better play nice when at school.
I have mixed feelings abut the proposal.
In some ways, given what seems to be going on in schools these days, I am for it.
However, as with all such endeavors, "Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it!"
The point being that you just might not like what you get!
AND, of course, the real bugaboo; The "Law of Unintended Consequences". It seems people get all excited about something, and never stop to think about what it REALLY allows or does not allow until the "unintended consequence" slaps them upside the head!
Then they whine about it.
I doubt very many school districts would allow teachers to carry firearms anyway. This sounds like it's there to protect the small (mostly rural) number of districts that are allowing it.

Texas teachers could be allowed to gun down students to protect school property

only republicans can create something so effed up !

And just because a bill is introduced does not mean it will be passed. Look at all the silly laws people talk about in California, when they are merely introduced but not passed.

This is the dumb. Teachers can already have guns on school grounds and there are already self-defense laws that allow them to shoot if their lives are threatened. I don't see the point of this bill.

I'm not a liberal, but explain this one to me.

Liberals are responsible for school shootings and school related violence ?

I don't know.
Where I live I don't have to worry about freakin' nuts trying to kill people and I don't have to look for soldiers in schools to protect me.
As I asked, why then arms have failed to prevent any of the things the cowgirl said from happening?
