Arming teachers terrible idea

I think arming teachers is a terrible idea. I do not want to have shootouts in our schools.

A better idea is to prevent armed troubled individuals from getting into our schools. We need to have a discussion on how best to do this. It is past time to repeat the old extreme positions. The discussion should include how to identify and intercept these troubled people before they get to a school and how to limit access to military style weapons. Some may not be willing to provide the resources to thwart these troubled individuals or feel their rights are being infringed upon, but if we want to have a better saner society we must find a meaningful way to reduce the carnage.
