Armed Teachers?

Yes, please.

At his White House event, Mr Trump promised to look “very strongly” at calls for educators to be armed with guns – a position long held by the National Rifle Association (NRA).

“If you had a teacher who was adept at firearms,” he said, “they could very well end the attack very quickly.”

“Where a teacher would have a concealed gun on them,” he said, while acknowledging the plan was controversial, “they would go for special training and they would be there, and you would no longer have a gun-free zone.

I certainly don’t require a teacher or staff member to have to carry a weapon, but if a teacher is willing and able to do so, why shouldn’t we let them have the opportunity to meet force with force to protect their students and themselves?
