Teachers should not be armed

Posted: January 17, 2013 - 10:19am

This subject has taken lots of thought and research in an old history book, my 1950 High School Yearbook. Teachers have too many responsibilities plus if they are designated to carry a gun, the whacko who was planning to do something crazy would eliminate the gun carrier first.

The number of teachers in my small hometown school who would have been capable of carrying a gun would be small. Our principal and band instructor were both World War II veterans some of the ladies could hunt with the best of them, but that is not in the job description of an Educator.

This yearbook has pictures of all of the students and teachers of grade 1 through 12 and two of the teachers, grades 1 and 2, taught my wife and her stepfather in this school. They may have spent all their teaching career teaching in this one school. We did not need kindergarten because our “parents” taught us at home. Today, with 50 percent of the children without parents there is no home training. My only recollection of toys was a wooden block set with letters and numbers on them. That was our kindergarten school books.

We were taught at an early age how to handle guns, the high school boys probably carried guns in their cars, especially during pheasant season and were looking for birds on their way home from school. Or in the winter time, rabbits, good old corn fed birds and animals. Our educators of today are teaching against guns anyway and like the rest of the world want to lay down and roll over like all the other countries in the world have done and look what has happened to them. They have became peasants to the dictatorship governments.

Please don’t try taking my gun away, I spent 4 years trying to preserve the right to carry it

Paul...Times Have Changed....Don't Underestimate your Teachers!

Yes, I agree, life was a lot less complex when you grew up in the 1950's. People had the concept of responsibility, morality and decency.

We are now in a world where kids grow up playing video games that glorify murder and killing. Where it is cool to be a gang-banger, do drugs and steal. I believe there is even a game out on that? "Grand Theft Auto"!

Go ahead, turn on the TV and flip through the channels:

Murder, Sex and Violence.

But, let us not underestimate our teachers!

Sure, I am not a real fan of public teachers either, in fact most of them are the same liberals who voted for the idiot we now are forced to degrade ourselves into calling our President.

But don't think for a moment that those same teachers would not STAND THEIR GROUND in the face of some cowardly jerk who wishes to do harm to themselves or our kids!

There is stories of these heroic Teachers trying to cover the kids as the maniacs try to end their lives.

I believe we MOST DEFINITELY SHOULD train our Teachers and Custodians skills needed to protect themselves and our children and give them the TOOLS they require!

Don't you think it is ironic that when they offered this choice to the Teachers in Ohio that 900 Teachers applied for 24 slots?

If we trust our Teachers enough to Teach our kids, then by God we should be able to trust them protect them as well! If we can't trust them to do that, then we need to fire them and find Teachers who will!

If you are a fool enough to believe that obama's new gun control laws are going to protect further school shootings, then you have been GREATLY DECEIVED by the MASTER OF DECEPTION!

Can you say Columbine?

His agenda has nothing to do about protecting our kids in schools, what it has to do is taking YOUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS TO BEAR ARMS!

Wake up...and Join the NRA TODAY!

Why not?

We protect everything else we love and will protect it with weapons, even politicians that we may not love, all though we do respect the office and do not wish any harm to them.
I think we should all be packing and allowed in schools while doing so as well as teachers packing and here in Alaska.
Either that or have retired people, men or women alike that would volunteeeeeeeer, people who know how to use guns properly to protect OUR MOST PRECIOUS TREASURES, OUR KIDS.
There was yet another person thrown on a Subway track after she had been beat by a man who wanted her purse, IF ONLY SHE HAD BEEN PACKING.
Things have changed and we have ABSOLUTELY NO MORAL STRUCTURE to help curb this trend of EVIL ACTS AGAINST OTHERS.
They removed God and Bible from us, now they want to also remove guns and our constitutional rights to protect our treasures. NOW THATS WHACO!
It,s not about guns folks, it's about rights to defend our selves and treasures from EVILS desire to control it all or destroy it all.
No guns, then cross bows with large capasity arrow magizines at schools. Nuts abound and they will not stop if we don't stop them from their end game of inflicting terror and harm for their psychotic fix of control & power over others, even if briefly.
