NRA Leader Advocates Guns for Teachers

  1. all options should be considered to prevent rampages like the minnesota school shooting that took 10 lives -- including making guns available to teachers, a top national rifle association leader said friday. .............
    "no gun law, no policy that you could implement now or that was already implemented, i think, could possibly prevent someone so intent on destruction," she said. "i think everything's on the table as far as looking at what we need to do to make our schools safe for our students."

    froman said if it is the responsibility of teachers to protect students in a school, "then we as a society, we as a community have to provide a way for the teachers to do that."

    arming teachers? i doubt that will stop tragedies like this and it might just become too much of a temptation, especially when little johnny in the back row is disrupting class again.

    I heard this the other day! My God what have we come to? Gun-toting teachers. Fine example for the kids. I can hardly blame them for wanting to protect themselves, but WHAT does this tell our KIDS?!!!

    another reason to homeschool. If this comes to pass, what's next? God only knows.

    Only in America is the solution not keeping guns out of the hands of children, but putting them into the hands of teachers.... Bassackwards if you ask me.

    Not a good idea to give teachers guns. A kid could get ahold of it.

    Ok, so it could be locked up. A locked up gun. That doesn't offer much in the line of protection. What would you do, just say "excuse me, Mr./Ms. Psychopath, i need to get out my gun"?

    So....

    They won't let teachers discipline kids.

    They won't let teachers spank kids.

    But it's ok for teachers to shoot kids?


    Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. :stone

    What needs to be emphasized is taking responsibility for your own children and stop making the schools raise them for you. Good/bad behavior begins at home.

    I think this is a great idea. If Junior gets out of line and makes a sudden move inside of his coat then POW! blow his *** away. And if it turns out that he was only scratching an itch, then at least it will put the rest of the punks on notice. That should put an end to tardiness, bad attitudes, slouching pants and not turning your homework.

    Rofl Steph, i told my son if his pants slouched so that his undies showed, i would pull em the rest of the way down for him.

    pretty much, that cured that.

    back to the original topic (sorry for the hijack, could not resist)

    Kind of defeats the purpose of calling them "underwear" if it's not UNDER anything.

    Well, we DID want "higher calibre" instructors in the classroom.
    I'd hate to see this "trigger" a trend in our schools though.
    We need to "clip" this idea now before it even starts.
    I'd expect this type of "semi-automatic" response from the NRA.
