teachers are our first line of defense against these crazies. they sould be required to know at least basic self defense. more guns is not the answer. if it was then why do cops keep getting killed? do away with the guns and you will do away with the problem. i am a hunter and love my guns but would give those that are not needed for hunting up if it would save the life of just one child.

Arming teachers seems fraught with potential dangers as who decides which teacher and if they are fit to do that kind of thing. The best idea of all did come from the NRA and that is simply put school resource officers in the elemnarty schools as they are in uppper schools, as it has shown that it does serve as a deterrent. The Gov of CT with all his political juices flowing signed some kind of gun law the other day with much fanfare though in terms of school safety it was meangingless. Just political theater. As Gov he could have signed a bill that put SROs in all elemntary schools which DOES work but chose instead to make a symbolic political act. Its ironic that the left hated NRA (must be all Repubs) had the best idea for safety. Obama has the best political idea to exploit the tragedy. As of today a CNN polls says less than 50% see the gun as the problem, or want more strict controls on lawful ownership. The time to exploit child deaths seems to be passing Obama by.

The whole "arming teachers" brain washing is an attempt by the gun grabbers to make it sound like they are forcing teachers to carry guns!!!

The plain TRUTH is the liberal run school systems had no right to strip away the teacher's constitutional RIGHT to at all times be armed!!!

The police state supporters want cops in the schools because they think they are "trained to handle the situation"

Well nothing can be further from the truth in most cases!

And I have shot side by side with the locals finest and these guys are on whole lousy marksmen who simply "spray and pray"!!

And it's the spraying bullets mentality of law enforcement that gets people killed!!

We were taught one shot one kill

Search you tube for "hickok45" and watch this GRADE SCHOOL TEACHER shoot and tell me again how teachers shouldn't be armed!!

NO hunter would EVER sell out his rights or those of others!!!

And if you want to give up ALL your rights that's YOUR poor choice but your not gonna force your warped views on those of us that have fought and DIED defending the constitution!!

I'm so tired of these fakes and phoneys who CLAIM to be "hunters" or "long time gun owners" spreading their liberal propaganda!

Whgfleeing is just a BS artist babbling in the wind about topics that is way over his pay grade.

No Liberal has ever answered my question: MURDER is punishable by DEATH PENALTY in most states, yet THAT is not enough to stop crazies using GUNS or KNIVES or BOMBS or any OTHER WEAPON.

So What possible laws will stop violence against people ____________????
