28. There is a vast world of difference between citizens carrying and professions guarding a school
Here in Washington state, we have no training requirement for CCW. However, I've been through about a 100 or more hours of advanced firearms training, some of it might make you shit bricks, and I daresay the average cop hasn't gone through some of the training I've done. Even though most don't go through much training, if any, the number of times that a private citizen carrying fucks up is exceedingly rare. There are some who go off the end, but no amount of training can prevent a break from reality.
Arming kids, well, I hope I really don't have to address why that's a bad idea.
Arming teachers, to that I will offer up a quote I read on Liberal Gun Club. Again, this is not me, so I am not the excellent cook.
When I'm cooking, I'm an excellent cook. When I'm driving, I'm an excellent driver. When I'm cooking and driving at the same time, I'm doing a piss-poor job of both, and endangering people at the same time.
There are jobs that require attention, focus, and vigilance: teaching and security BOTH fall into that category, and expecting one person to fulfill both roles for a classroom is unrealistic and accepting of the fact that they will be marginal at best in either duty.
