Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Gun toting educators:


My concern is that if, in the line of defending his/her classroom, a teacher's friendly fire were to hit (fatally or otherwise) a student, that teacher would be absolutely crucified. The fallout from that innocent mistake would make Zimmerman look like a picnic in the park.

So, it's not enough that teachers are supposed to be educators of children and have to practically assume the role of a parent (tho they're affording no actual authority) for a great many of their students, but now we may also ask them to be armed security personnel - with all of the inherent risk, responsibility, and potential liability of that role?

The teacher shortage we have now could become little more than a drop in the bucket and we will have lost a lot of irreplaceable, caring educators.

Rob O, only those teachers who feel confident about their shooting ability should volunteer to carry a gun to school.
