I see our own Mike DeWine ok'd a bill for teachers to carry. 24 hours of training required.
#45 suggested the same thing. Hire professionals and pay them with leftover plandemic monies. But if a teacher is capable, train and arm them also.It is very easy to say, arm the teachers, save a child. I retired from a school district out side of Warren, Ohio, in 1999. The last 2 years, it was always in the back of my mind, that a shooter could gain access to the building. I know of at least 2 times when students brought a gun to the school, it was handled internally. Today , of course, that would not be the case, thankfully !!
I coached a competitive Rifle Team at the school for 16 years, if anyone had to carry back at that time, it would have been I. I realize times have changed, but if I had to get up in the morning, and be ready to teach my classes for the day, and put a 9mm in my pocket, it would have been a tough pill to swallow. An outside intruder was one thing, but the thought that I would have to disable a young student, is a totally different thought. Teachers are supposed to teach, so much is dumped on them already. Pass your school levies, hire armed professionals for EVERY building !! Let the teachers teach.
Valid point and unfortunately will happen at some point. Fortunately other staff will still respond quicker than LE. Not a perfect solution, but an improvement. The hired professional would also be an improvement, but don't know if it's financially feasible.The first time a gun is taken from a teacher and used by a student everyone will be changing their tune on this subject.
Yea i understand this one and it probably will happen at some point in time someplace..The first time a gun is taken from a teacher and used by a student everyone will be changing their tune on this subject.
