Should Teachers Carry Guns?

Quote:Ed Mackouse stood before the Central Bucks School Board this week and said that teachers and administrators should carry guns in the district's schools.

"Everyone knows that the NRA is right. The only way to stop a gun is with another gun," said Mackouse, 69.

"We can’t afford to have too many armed professional guards," continued Mackouse, who lives in Buckingham, "and they’re not as good, they can’t tell the difference" between a threatening individual and parents and other school visitors.

So arming teachers and school staff is a good solution, Mackouse said.

The nine school board members made no comment on his suggestions Tuesday night, and no official action is on the table for Central Bucks.

As always, the comments are just simply precious

I think they should if they want to, but I would be ok with qualification requirement for them if they want to carry at work. I don't think they need it, but I think it's the only way such a bill would pass, and I think it would grant peace of mind to people who are on the fence about the idea.

I say let them carry, but have them pass the MPO pistol qualification course. It's an easy course, and if you are "average" with a pistol then you can easily pass it. They can take an MPO course and I'm sure the NRA can create a simple school-based concealed carry class. The NRA can instruct teachers how to conceal their weapons better, different methods of concealment, different types of firearms, how to identify suspicious people (kinda like how the secret service is always scanning audiences and keeping an eye on certain people showing certain body language, etc.), and what to do during and after an active shooter. I'm not a firearms expert or instructor, but I'm positive myself and one or two others from here could even design a good course.

They should be allowed and because of the environmental conditions there should be a training requirement.

Hell, some schools have already armed the janitors.

Sorry as off topic but a response to Philadelphia Patriot - Awhile back I was in an Apple Store in a mall. A guy came in and had his right hand in his coat (upper area to this left) I watched him and he did not move his hand - minutes passed as his hand remained like that, so I got my son and walked out of the store but stayed on the outside looking in at him - finally after what seemed like a very long time, he removed his hand.

It put me in a state of concern and luckily it turned out to be nothing. It was just very odd and disturbing to me.

I absolutely think they should have the option, with training.

I am teaching next year in a private church-school. I'm going to see if there is any paperwork that can be signed or something that would give me an allowance to CC my .380 in my SmartCarry. I doubt it, but it never hurts to ask. The elementary part of the school is fairly secure, but the high school part (another building) is harder to secure (hard to explain) and that's where I'll be.

Each classroom door has an inside lock and also there is a loudspeaker system and phone system in every classroom for communication....But still.

I agree with the training requirement, and make it practical. Hell, strongly urge them to participate in IDPA since that stresses scenarios with cover, non-threats, etc.

Can I get a little help with the comments on the story? I don't want to be the only one standing up for our rights.
