Trump says he wants teachers to have guns

100% in line with what the NRA wants him to say. Do you think turning teachers into armed guards is the answer to school shootings?

I'm in the UK but if school shootings were a thing here I think I'd want someone armed in a school incase. I don't know about all the teachers because what if one of them goes crazy. But a couple or perhaps an emergency gun room with a couple of trained staff who have access.

I don't know but I can't see the US getting rid of guns so what is the best way to protect children? Having armed responsible adults seems the quickest simplest way.

[@617886,Enslymore] Gun laws in Canada are similar to the UK, but not as tough.

[@617886,Enslymore] oh we had a crazy guy attack people with a machete once. And one guy went on a crazy rampage with a shot gun. But that is the only crazy person gun attack in alot of years that I've heard of.

A guy got shot in the face in a bar by an unknown assailant but he was a cocaine dealer so that wasn't a crazy person.

I can't think of any crazy gun rampages other than that one guy.

Also I noticed they commit and medicate alot of male criminals. They don't reoffend when they're medicated with strong drugs so they don't move up the criminal food chain because they're medicated and often put on sickness benefit so have no motivation because of the drugs or need to commit crime because they have money. Disarm and disable I guess. That then leaves less people likely to riot and attack the stock market etc. If there's a riot you will get criminals who will travel to the riot so they can rob shops not because they politically agree with the riot so if half of them are medicated and have a bit of money in their pocket they won't get off their backsides to go make everything worse.

We're a very small country, small land mass, it's easier to manage than America.

Oh and after the last couple of terror attacks one guy drove to a Mosque and stabbed people there but I think he was upset and fed up about the terror attacks rather than just crazy.

[@376657,chris62ca] do you have school shootings or crazy people shootings?
SageWanderer · 70-79, M
Hell, maybe it is the answer but they can't afford to pay teachers a decent wage here. Many classrooms without supplies and now they want training and have them carry a gun?
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
[@516380,nudewalker] outlaw guns and the honest citizens won't have them for defense but criminals will use 3-D printers I'm sure of that, besides all the ones they've got hidden away for such a time.
[@16806,cherokeepatti] Teachers packing their own heat means they have not been trained.
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
[@619287,Jwalker] they have too, they got a certificate and it comes before getting that.
chris62ca · 56-60, M
You will have a lot of innocent kids killed in the crossfire.
MasterLee · 51-55, M
[@376657,chris62ca] nope
Why put your kid in to a war zone? The Trump Admin wants to end the Dept. of Education is this just one way to make people understand they need to pay for their kids to go to Private School.
MasterLee · 51-55, M
[@619287,Jwalker] right send them to a hardened school. Don't go to the gun free war zones.
MarineBob · 56-60, M
Not until the NEA IS GONE
So you want to attack teachers again by taking away the NEA and then give the teachers guns????????
MarineBob · 56-60, M
No, I am stating my own opinion the teacher is to teach. Don't even think about arming one as long as the NEA EXISTS
MasterLee · 51-55, M
[@619287,Jwalker] how does your warped mind come up with this.
MasterLee · 51-55, M
Better than the liberal same old song and dance that gets kids killed.

Face it, your SWAT team is not going to make it in time to save anybody. Your FBI sure as hell doesn't care to prevent it. I pack heat and as I've said here before, it is not just to be the hero of my own life but innocent people.
MasterLee · 51-55, M
[@584388,Littleboxofsecrets] just call a meat wagon to pick up the attacker. Police is minutes away when seconds count.
SW User
[@9463,MasterLee] exactly
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
We have that already in Oklahoma and no one has messed with us yet. Not easy to play out a false flag if there are teachers with guns.
MarineBob · 56-60, M
[@16806,cherokeepatti] one wacko will coin a new phrase. .. " suicide by teacher"
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
[@2021,MarineBob] Well so....
Wraithorn · 51-55, M
And then ? Maybe nurses and paramedics can be told to carry guns too.
[@16806,cherokeepatti] Play out a false flag? What does that mean?
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
[@619287,Jwalker] oh dear, you need to read about it. MK-Ultwa, real thing and not a "conspiracy theory " I don't have all day.
Wraithorn · 51-55, M
[@619287,Jwalker] Of course ! Not to even mention them being called out to schools were kids are killers....:-)
I think we need auto gun turrets on ambulances too.
Toasty · 22-25, M
No. but if they are, what if they dont want to risk their own life? i feel its kinda beyond the duty of a teacher.

hire guards or something
luckranger71 · 51-55, M
No. Just another step on the road to a fully armed dystopian America.
[@9295,luckranger71] Next step, no one should be able to tell anyone they can't have a gun. Everyone gets a gun.
AlmostAnAngel · 100+, F
Teachers should be in charge of education not protection. The Administration and Police should do something about it.
[@354940,AlmostAnAngel] If the teachers mistakenly kill a few kids, whatever he was always disruptive anyway. He just looked like he might be carrying a gun.

Why not just have armed guards.. No wait..just make schools into prisons!
