I hear you John but I just don't think arming teachers is the way to go.......To dangerous.
I'd rather see a well trained, real identity unknown to the kids "Marshal" of some type who would be much more effective in a violent situation than most school teachers. Again, along the lines of a Sky Marshal. I haven't really thought this through yet but I just don't like the idea of armed teachers.
Edit: To be an effective "School Marshal" would really require a tremendous amount of training, practice & marksmanship in a confusing & violent situation, that would be much too time consuming for any teacher to do, along with his/her many other "teaching" responsibilities.
Let the teacher "Teach" & let a professional do the protecting.
