Ummm... you might want to think about not skipping your meds next time...
Here's an idea: what about the two kids who get int a shoving contest in the hall, and the teacher who breaks it up stabs them with a pencil. Years later the bodies have decayed and the teacher is diagnosed... blah blah blah.
Yeah, take the meds. You need them.
In order for teachers and staff to carry a pistol, they must have a Texas license to carry a concealed handgun; must be authorized to carry by the district; must receive training in crisis management and hostile situations and have to use ammunition that is designed to minimize the risk of ricochet..
.. community is a 30-minute drive from the sheriff's office, leaving students and teachers without protection. He said the district's lone campus sits 500 feet from heavily trafficked U.S. 287, which could make it a target.
In its public announcement released Wednesday, the State Department said "violent criminal activity along the U.S.-Mexico border has increased as a product of a war between criminal organizations struggling for control of the lucrative narcotics trade along the border."

They are carrying guns to shoot kids.
That makes them retarded.
Hire ONE police officer, this is just stupid and asking for trouble.
Teachers have gotten flat out dumb.
I can see it now "Teacher goes to lunch, kid find gun in desk. Acidentally kills himself."
Youre teaching CHILDREN, you should never have guns around kids period end of story. You arent a trained cop.

If you don't think that it will happen it probably won't. That is the only logical way to defend yourself. If you have a gun when someone else is on a killing spree it will only lead to more killing because you will have shot the person killing other people and that just isn't right. If you don't carry a gun and someone wants to kill you they probably won't because they will realize it isn't fair to kill you when you don't have a gun. All you have to do is think really hard "they know this isn't fair and they won't kill me or anyone else from here on out." It is the only logical answer.

This is scary. I can see it now two kids get into a shoving match in the hall between class and the teacher intercedes with a gun. Years later after the young dead bodies of the two miscreants have long since rotted in pauper graves the teacher is diagnosed as bipolar. Sending your kid to a public school that allows all teachers to carry guns is literally playing russian roulette with the lives of your kids. I wonder if the school personal would feel equally comfortable dealing with parents who carried guns onto school property.

These threads show just how stupid authoritarianism has become. The motto of some of those who post pro lunatic gun foolishness seems to be "Show teachers how much you love them give em guns!
This is your brain on flouridated water. I just drank a glass of it. I see the logic of guns everywhere. Guns good! Guns Good! I feel so sane just like the authoritarians.
