    for many years.  Even that is a telling measure of our culture of violence and our gun culture.  Teachers carrying guns is ridiculous on its face.  No other civilized western democracy would allow the wild west to rule  in their countries and in their schools.  Stand your ground has been used to defend cold blooded murder in Florida.  Guns on college campuses is insane.  The VA does not allow guns on its grounds at any of their large and small (one of the largest and busiest here in Tampa, FL) campuses/hospitals/clinics.  Couldn't there be an argument that ex Navy Seals and Special Forces Troops would certainly protect and defend their sisters and brothers and family members with their guns?  You see how illogical and "dumb" such an idea is?

      I couldn't agree more.

      For some districts it will be an opportunity for some teachers to bring their hobby to school. And get paid to pursue their hobby.

      There is a George Zimmerman in the making.
