Feeling Lucky?

...well, do ya punk? Not if you know that every other teacher at the school is carrying a gun and knows how to use it.

Charl van Wyk at presents the option of arming school-teachers,

By the time a 17-year-old gunman had finished his wild shooting spree at a school near Stuttgart, Germany, this week, at least nine young pupils and three teachers lay dead. Only after fleeing the scene, with the police in hot pursuit, and a final shootout with authorities, was the attacker finally killed
Could an armed teacher have made a difference? Of course. Surely a teacher with a gun in the hand would have been better than a cop on the phone. The incident proves what has long been known: The only person who can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun – nobody else will be of much help

Here's a wild idea... Why not let students that have been authorized by their parents and duly trained, carry weapons?

High levels of gun ownership to not cause high levels of so called "gun crime".

heh, thanks for that link Anon. You raise a very good point. And very simply, that is that in some situations, there is a case for students being armed.

Completely agree.
