You hear almost every day another school goes into lock down or some crazy lunatic takes a gun to school its every tragic to hear of students and teachers getting shot. You hear of parents so afraid to send their child to school or not knowing when they drop their son or daughter off it will be there last. What if we can take preventive measures to help prevent a troubled individual or make them think twice about taking a gun to school? There are many things that schools can do to secure the students inside and are being implemented, but who are the students always around? And who sees the students more than anyone else? The teachers and I believe we can do the most good by arming them with guns after the proper training and test. Arming the teachers with guns can protect the students in case of an emergency. With training a teacher can mean the difference between life and death, standing between school students and a crazed person with a gun is and properly trained teacher and can hold off the intruder till the law enforcement arrives instead of being there in a class room like fish in a borrow praying the shooter doesn’t find them. I believe students would feel safer about their teacher having a gun to protect them with if needed, and how would a person feel about going into a school knowing the teachers are all armed would he be thinking about and many people he would shoot or about how far he would get before a teacher guns him or her down.
