According to this teacher’s union president, armed teachers would instill fear into the hearts and minds of children and parents. Hopefully not. But here’s an interesting question: if teachers can carry in schools why should parents be prohibited from exercising their natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms inside the school gates? I don’t envision a teacher – parent shoot-out or a teacher capping my kid, but I’m no more comfortable with society granting educators a “special privilege” to pack heat in school than I am with exempting cops from draconian gun laws they’re charged with enforcing. Instead of arming teachers, shouldn’t we simply repeal Bush the Elder’s Gun Free School Zones Act so that the States can “let” anyone who can legally carry to legally carry in school? More than that, what about a federal law (or Supreme Court ruling) banning gun ban zones? Your thoughts?
