What can we do to protect our children from guns, both in school and away from school?


Many people believe more guns might be the answerm however I disagree. Should teachers be trained to use firearms? I think our teachers should concentrate on teaching and not teaching/protecting. What is your view? Please, I am looking for serious answers as I now have grandchildren in school.

    Aren't these ex military personnel the ones that shoot up Post Offices across the country, hence "going postal". That's all we need is PTSD in the schools.

    We can't even arm our teachers with knowledge, so how is arming them with guns going to help?

    I agree with you mayaanna, Most people become teachers because they have a sincere desire to teach. They should not be required to teach and protect, as a part of their jobs. Security should be provide for them and their students.

    CJ Sledgehammer, Your points are valid, but they're a generation too late. We're here now, we cannot go back. So tell me, how can we carry out such a massive clean up?
