Give Teachers Guns in Schools!!!
Teachers with Guns vs Students with Guns = Black Ops in real life. Srsly?
Giving teachers guns? That's probably one of the dumbest ideas i've ever heard. That just makes it easier for crazy kids to snatch one up. "Lets train teachers to use these guns". Yeah, like a few weeks of training is going to do any good when a crazy kid knows where it's hidden. That's like taking a crash course in kung fu and expect it to be of any use in a street fight. Also, don't forget that teachers can be just as insane as students.
Can you imagine a teacher pulling out a gun to discipline a child? That's frickin scary. School would be a prison, not a place to think freely.
Some problems are unsolvable because the fault doesn't lie within the system, but the nodes within the system. The system in this case, is gun control and the problem is gun use by crazy people. The problem is crazy people - not gun use and this problem is unstoppable by anything other than proper education but even then it is impossible to eliminate crazy people all together. It is possible to minimize crazy people's access to guns by banning guns but in these causes, you'll need to ask how do kids get guns in the first place when it is already illegal. It means that the kids bypassed the law because don't forget laws are not absolute and so just because you make a law, doesn't mean it's going to solve a problem (which the public and law makers forget. Their way of thinking is: if there is a problem , make a law against it).
In science, I compare this to random error. No matter what the precaution, there's no way to eliminate the dangers 100% and the only way to solve this problem is to computerize society (take away ALL rights to do anything), but even so computers frequently crash and society is much harder to computerize than a computer.
The biggest concept and problem with law making for the sake of protecting is: How can you protect those you need to protect without punishing everyone by limiting freedom. Yes, a law is a punishment. Your parents take away your xbox or playstation to punish you and this is no different. In those case, such laws would include not merely children but adults capable of self thinking. In America, I believe in helping others as well as "we reap what we sow". If someone dies from driving and eating, that is their problem but it is crazy to punish EVERYONE with laws from the actions of a minority (many laws are required to keep a country safe. Some just goes overboard)
Who would want to live in a society with no freedom? Ok? I'm not going to offer solution because it is too complicated for a single article, but I an only here to tell you why it is stupid to assume laws will solve any problem including issues with arming teachers.
