I heard many School Teachers  are now carrying Firearms.?

Are they Arming Elementary and High School Teachers with Firearms  like Police Officers ?   This is the first time that I heard about this.   In history.

    Your history is PATHETIC. In fact, prior to 50 years ago, it was COMMON for teachers AND students to bring hunting rifles to school. It was not unusual for the school to have a rifle range in the basement and sponsor a gun club.

    In fact, you can trace any increases in school shootings to the DECREASE in the number of people ready to RETURN FIRE.

    Who are "they?" Very few teachers carry weapons. They know it's stupid to do so.

    @ Starrysky   Is English not your primary language that you cannot see the articles say "some school staff" and "can" carry firearms (not "must" carry firearms)?

      

    False information.  There has not been a serious suggestion that school teachers be armed.  What has been suggested is that > some < school staff be given the option of being armed or having quick access to weapons after being specially trained.  The suggestions usually stipulate that only school staff with military or police experience be armed. 

    Generally, schools are choosing to employ armed security personnel rather than arm regular school staff.
