Nebraska Politician Promotes Arming Teachers - Schools should set own gun policies, state senator argues

Nebraska Politician Promotes Arming Teachers - Schools should set own gun policies, state senator argues:
'If you have a kid come in to shoot a teacher or other kids, it’s best to have somebody that can take care of the situation,' declared Christensen. Similar moves have been discussed in other states, although only one school district in the US currently allows guns in K-12 schools. With law enforcement 30 minutes away, 'we are our first responders,' says the superintendent of the Harrold Independent School District in rural Texas.
What a great idea. Nothing could possibly go wrong with that plan. But why stop there?  Why not mandate all teachers, students, cafeteria staff, and janitors carry firearms?

  1. Considering how rare schools shootings actually are (and what is actually going on in schools), I think if teachers really want protection, they should be given condoms.
