A great man once said "Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country" I'm licensed to carry & do carry all the time to protect myself & others from armed criminals. From what I see America NEEDS more real Americans carrying to stop this insane crime wave that is attacking our children. If the american teachers need something to help them teach our children we give it to them. If american teachers need to be trained & armed we need to give that to them. This is nothing new teachers in Israel are trained & carry arms to protect the children under their care. http://www.wnd.com/2009/03/91528/ http://www.inquisitr.com/439907/sandy-hook-elementary-school-shooting-arm-the-teachers/ If there is a threat to our children the teachers are the only ones that are there in the class room and should be ready to repel that threat. I'm not saying that they should be the only defense but they should pick up the ball and put them selves between criminals & this nations future, "Our Children'. I have been told that most people think it would be unreasonable to train and arm teachers. We know from past history that most school shooters are cowards. They take their own life as soon as they meet armed resistance. This would be the only real answer is to train, license & arm all teachers and school officers.
