Stats now......

57% Yes. If properly trained, these school staff members could protect students and halt a mass shooting incident.

29% No. Teachers and school staff should not be allowed to bring guns to campuses under any circumstances. The risk of harming an innocent student is too high.


14% I don't know.

Sounds cool, but I would be more surprised if people didn't favor guns for teachers in the Inland Empire/San Berdoo area

I voted yes but it will never happen. In fact, with these new bills being introduced, if they pass, I can see CA just one step closer to banning ANY semi-auto firearm. CA does not seem to care about our rights and liberties and these should all be challenged in federal court.

That would make for an easy lawsuit........... Paging :gura:

I just hit submit and the poll changed to 'are you going to dress up like an elf this year?'


Well, are you?

Has anyone bothered to ask teachers if they want to be armed?

Probably not. Went back and tried again and it seemed to work, but didn't show the results.

If teachers are armed, will the number of teachers shot by other teachers in petty squabbles in a give year exceed the number of students who may be shot in attacks?

I voted "no".

I fail to understand the reasoning here.

Makes no sense. If somebody wants to shoot somebody at a school, they will bring a gun and shoot somebody at a school. So who cares if they have a legal concealed gun or not? If they want to commit a murder, they can do it, CCW or no. School shootings of late prove this; the shooters didn't have CCW's either.

Your premise is ridiculous.

I am a teacher, and I will be armed in the Classroom! I plan on getting my school board to pay for it but we'll see about that part. My logic is it is way cheaper to pay for me to take a class and the permit--under $400, then any other money they spend on security.

Gun laws aren't the answer. Boxing up the psychos is.

You should contact your congressman and tell him this also
