3. I just started another thread on the question

Ed forgot to ask, about her weapons training. He was asking her why she wanted to CC. Well duh, because she wants to feel safe and she thinks this will make her feel safe.

4. Yes. She is clueless. She some how think she can face a wall of bullets from a person with an

assault weapon that has body armor on. There will be nothing left of her. All this talk about cops in schools and arming teachers will cause the next mass killer to come in with body armor to protect against any thing.

9. Nothing wrong with cross eyes. It does not make a person any less intelligent.

I know many intelligent people with cross eyes, including my own son. Fortunately, he had an operation as a young child to correct it.

6. Well that's going to bring on a lawsuit-no parent knowledge????

Edited to add: And kids did not report that to their parents? I find that hard to believe.

7. What scares me that it takes only one accident. Can you see where she/he puts that

 

gun in her/his desk and she/he leaves their class. Some kid goes up to the desk and finds the gun and takes it out and it fires accidently. Or how about a teacher getting hot tempered and pulls the gun out and shoots the kid. Mark my words something like this is going to happen. I will tell you I would sue to school and the teacher if my child were hurt.

10. She makes herself and any other teacher the first target. Shooter won't know who is armed


and who isn't.

In the public schools I went to the biggest danger would be us, the students. Just wait till she turns her back, bust her across the back of the head, take the gun.

Really stupid.

I read a suggestion that they could avoid liability, but I don't think that's the case with negligence or acting against policy.

I wonder what a 60 or 100 million hit on a school budget would look like?
