    ...believe arming classroom teachers is the answer don't give a buffalo crap about protecting students...they want to win the struggle between god given gun tottiner's rights and and the communist inspired left that wants to surrender our lands and women and children to the hord's of south America and other darker-than-white skinned peoples country. ( for those who aren't sure the aforementioned was ment to be snark) but does have some connection to radical conservative thought process. IMHO, arming and even training dedicated teachers to be body-guards will more likely end with their death and/or deaths of some innocents if they are put in a shoot or die and or others die situation. Teachers deeply care about their students. Their reflex will be to first protect them, not attack an armed intruder and that's is the first issue at hand...take the(m) out of their plan which causes confusion and provide cover and time for students safety and escape.  Even trained soldiers can hesitate at an unfortunate time. What will the vast number of teachers do when a (surprise attack) happens? Worse, what kind of teaching/learning atmosphere is it to have teachers packing walking halls and in class rooms?  Paranoid comes to mind.  

    Our nations quality of life is based on the rightousness of its people.
