Ga. Schools Resist Arming Teachers Despite New Law

Georgia school leaders are turning down a new option to arm teachers, arguing that it doesn't make kids any safer and creates more problems than state lawmakers intended to solve.

A string of attacks at schools and colleges in California, Oregon and Washington state hasn't swayed education officials who say bluntly that they don't believe guns belong in schools.

"We could give (teachers) all the training in the world as to how to a shoot a gun, but knowing when to shoot poses a major problem," said Steve Smith, superintendent of the Bibb County School District. "The folks we work with day in and day out don't have that." http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/ga-sc...w-24332094

I don't have a problem with this. I like that Georgia has allowed school districts this option. And that's what the law is... an option not a" must do".

Much like I think the federal government should stay out of most local affairs, I think the state should also and the decision to arm teachers should be up to the individual districts. No outside entity should be forcing them to arm teachers, no outside entity should keep them from arming teachers if that is their decision.
Everytime we look the other way when someone else loses rights we disagree with, we make it easier to lose the rights we support.

No one is forcing individual teachers to carry, they are forcing the schools to allow teachers to carry. It's the public school system, it should be the same across the board. If private schools want to set their own policies, that's a different story.

I'd be more than happy to be a firearm carrying history teacher.

I don't like how they feel like average citizens don't know "when to shoot". Of course nobody really truly knows when to shoot, but when "it" happens, I think you'll know.

The argument is scary because to convince people that teachers are too "normal" to know how and when to handle a gun basically says nobody but the cops know how and when to handle a gun.
