Florida school massacre panel recommends arming teachers

https://nypost.com/2018/12/13/florida-school-massacre-panel-recommends-arming-teachers/

My 2 - Train them to secure the students and themselves, not turn into Rambo.


FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. The panel investigating the Florida high school massacre recommended Wednesday that teachers who volunteer and undergo extensive background checks and training be allowed to carry concealed guns on campus to stop future shootings.

The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission voted 13-1 to recommend the Legislature allow the arming of teachers, saying its not enough to have one or two police officers or armed guards on campus. Florida law adopted after the Feb. 14 shooting that left 17 dead allows districts to arm non-teaching staff members such as principals, librarians and custodians 13 of the 67 districts do, mostly in rural parts of the state.

5. Your two cents,

That is how self defense works. Many of the ones I know, and had, were either WW2/Korean War/ peacetime draftees (showing my age) and involved in the shooting sports since a young age. Rambo used a big knife and a compound bow.

My two cents, I have yet to see a rational argument against it but Ronald Noble, founder of RKN Global and former INTERPOL Secretary General, makes the best argument for it.
