I have a unique perspective being my wife is a teacher at an elementary school. I,myself am a retired military officer and we'll versed in removing a
threat.I will make this short. Arming teachers in an elementary school is not really a good idea, I could make a list as to why, but It comes down to
one simple fact, most teacher will not pull the trigger on the threat, because they are trained as teachers, need I say more.
The best solution is very well professionally trained armed personal and a well thought out defense/ escaped plan for the entire school. Keep in
mind one plan does not fit all schools, each school is designed different . Each school would need a customized plan according to it's number of
students, structure design etc.
Now after the event in CT. I asked my wife about the schools plan on lock down. Let me just say this, it is a Pi** Poor plan, not to mention that very
same plan applies to all schools in the district. The district does have a small police force, but they are few and could never responded to the
threat in time . There police force is armed, but keeps the 9mm locked in the trunk! By order of the school board , Wtf.
The real talk in my wifes school among the teachers. We Want Protection!
Now , the principle of the school wants to be armed, but not the staff. The teachers do not want to be armed , so my wife says. They want trained
armed personal, not rent a cops with 9mm and would prefer former military personal with no head problems. That reasoning is based on there police
force being rent a cops with little training and have proven so far ineffective to any threat.
My plan is reduce or dissolved the TSA and place security where in really counts, our schools. Our teachers face threats everyday. My wife had to
call the regular police to get this kid to give up his knife, 3rd grader on the playground. ( this was another challenged kid )
I quote my wife, " its not the guns, it's these parents getting lawyers to sue for approval to have there severely disturbed mentally challenged
kids put in regular classrooms, this has got to stop , my friend now has broken arm because of this . My classroom is not a test lab for some
psychologist looking to get published"
My wife tells me everyday about the events at her school. There all violent in nature and each one involves a mentally challenged kid. Keep in mind
this is a elementary school!
