OgreMagi: How about giving the teachers guns? That would put a stop to school shootings./unless a teacher snaps//very likely in a high school since all teenagers are farking douchenuggets
GAT_00: Republican logic. Oh no, people are getting shot due to incredibly lax gun laws! How do we fix this? MORE GUNS! That'll fix everything! It's the exact same argument as deregulation.
Bit'O'Gristle: Sighs, it's what i've been saying for years, arm the teachers, school security armed, and why not arm the students if they pass a background check? At least you would be able to defend yourself and not just lay there waiting to get shot like a cowering dog. My daughter is in college, and you better believe that I bought her a glock 21 that she carries in her oversized purse to every class. She has the constitutional right to bear arms, and I want to make sure she makes it through 4 years of college without becoming a statistic. And yes..i made her take the gun safety classes. She's actually a pretty good shot.
david_gaithersburg: bojon: This has to be taught??Yes.

These days, everytime I see one of your post I immediately know, before even reading it, that the internet has been saturated with yet another opinion that could only have come from one fo the dumbest mother farkers alive and that by reading it, I will have done as much damage to my brain as a night of heavy binge drinking....but read I always do. You are like Kim Kardashian. Everytime i come across her on TV i stop for just one instant to see what dumb shiat she is going to say. I then take a few moments of silence to wheep for humanity and move on
2wolves: I know I'm old compare to most Farkers. That's ok.When I was in junior high and high school I (and others) brought our long guns to the vice principal's office in the morning so we could at the end of the school day jump off the bus a couple of stops early to hunt our way home. A couple of rabbits, a pheasant, brace of squirrel, even a buck made a big difference. It wasn't a big deal. If Jimmy Smith lost a toe because he was a dumb fark everyone else took the lesson to heart and kept the safety on.Anyone who grabbed for their firearm and not their fists was considered a loon, a loser, a wimp.
LoneWolf343: JWideman: I think I read that in Israel, the school teachers are armed. I'm not sure if that's a standard thing or if it's just individual choice, but I do know that at least one teacher stopped a terrorist from killing kids. My point is, arming and training the teachers sounds like a really good idea. However, what the hell are unarmed children going to do? I mean, besides providing a target rich environment.In Israel, virtually all of the adults have training due to mandatory military service, so it wouldn't exactly translate to the US well.
Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: GAT_00: Republican logic. Oh no, people are getting shot due to incredibly lax gun laws! How do we fix this? MORE GUNS! That'll fix everything! It's the exact same argument as deregulation.Where in the article did anyone suggest "more guns" as a solution? Or did you just use some "democrat logic" and make shiat up to conform to your presumptive biases?
Gyrfalcon: What needs to happen is NOT arming teachers and students, but changing the mindset of people (police, first responders and school officials alike) so that in a situation like this, the teacher on the phone to the dispatcher can give an accurate description of their location and say "You know, we can still make a break for the back hallway--tell the cops we're coming out that door."
propasaurus: LoneWolf343: It really changes the game when you turn a school from hundreds of running targets to hundreds of people conspiring to take you down.Unless the game is "how many of you can I take down with me?"

INeedAName: Bathia_Mapes: I don't think this is something that should be encouraged, but in the case of Kip Kinkel, it was students who restrained him until the authorities could arrive. However, there are just too many things that could go wrong to encourage the teachers & students to fight back.I think it's great if people are willing to fight back, but 'teaching' it is something that will not end well. We as a society are not fighters, and the people that are tend to be anomalous. Setting that as a standard/expectation puts people in a dangerous position.
