Talk about the morons leading the idiots.
How'd those well trained armed guards at Columbine work out for you gun nuts? (There were two of them) Not so well.
Thirty seven mass shootings recorded over 10 years, all but one has occurred in a gun free zone. That one was when Arizona Congresswoman, Gabby Gifford was shot in Tucson on January 8, 2011 near a supermarket. The killers know those areas are places they can kill the most people, the least amount of security, and the least amount of fire arm retaliation. Many end up committing suicide after police arrive on the scene.
But despite the massive news coverage, none of the media coverage, at least by 10 a.m. Thursday, mentioned this central fact: Yet another attack occurred in a gun-free zone.
but Carol Lear, a chief lawyer for the Utah Office of Education said that the move was a 'terrible idea.'

Maybe we should train them how to operate fighter jets too so they can patrol the school grounds from above during recess.

Here are some murder stats per year. As you can see, the murder rate has continued to fall even after the ban on assault weapons was lifted. In fact, crime in general has fallen even after the ban was lifted even though our population has continued to increase. You're going to need a new leg to stand on if you want to have a compelling argument.

How long until an overworked Teacher loses it and shoots his/her class?
Or how long until a student gets hold of the firearm and uses it?
Madness complete madness.
they already are but i'm leaning toward a petition to encourage all gun owners to begin utilizing gun control activists for target practice ...
Maybe we should start a petition to have all government offices and locations declared a gun free zones.

Teachers are people too -- and their job is getting increasingly harder each year. Many teachers have their performance evaluations tied into the their student's test scores.
What happens when you teach at a low-income school where the kids get ZERO help or support from their parents and families? And when you call the parents...they don't speak english.
Do you think you're going to get good test scores? A good evaluation? That alone would be grounds for some long-time teachers to snap. The stress level teachers today have to put up with because of "no child left behind" grows every year.
Parents are to busy working 3 jobs just to stay afloat to instill in their children a sense that education is important. It's either that, or their selfish and just don't care about their kids. Teachers have to put up with that, and it's getting worse each year!
