    I think its a good thing personally, i have a friend who is a teacher, and while he doesn't own a gun, he likes going shooting with me. When it was first talked about on the news, he said that he didnt think it was a good idea. mainly because of some of the people he worked with, that he thought would go for it, were the more armchair ninja sort, who would be a danger to everyone but the bad guy.

    Then i asked him, if he would do it, he said he was not sure, but he would be open to it depending on how its implemented, i asked him if he was in the school when the worst happened, would he be willing to shield any of the kids from harm, he said yes, i then pointed out, you sound like you would be willing to die for those kids, if you were armed, you could also be willing to live for them, and alive, your going to be able to do them a lot more good.

    He sided up for the program in his school system, They are in the process of seeing if anyone is interested in it, and screening those that are, before the final steps to put it into practice. But he did say, that only a couple of the armchair ninjas showed up, the others who did show really surprised him, the women outnumbered the men many times over, and were already gun owners, about half already had a permit. He said he was glad he talked to me cause he is feeling pretty good about the system now, and is proud to be a part of it.

    So, will the armed teachers be highly visible? Open carrying?

    Ga has Campus Carry and no advanced training or certification required to participate. The only requisite is that you can ONLY conceal carry on campus; and have to have your GWCL.

    Levelland, TX ISD has had 20 staff armed for the past five years in addition to the four School Resource officers for their 5 campuses.

    During that time, there have been absolutely, no incidents.

    It's a great idea provided there a screening so the right teachers end up being the armed teachers. If you're going to cower and hide while others are being killed or if you want to whip out your sidearm for the smallest of things, I don't want you to be the one chosen.

    These sheepdogs must learn to keep their defense tool on them at all times. Leaving it in a purse or in a desk is seriously wrong, on many levels.

    The only thing wrong with this is that they are identifying the armed teachers. Takes away the element of surprise. If the BG knows which targets are threats to his plan and neutralizes them first, the rest is mop-up. The implementation should be to make the sheepdogs indistinguishable from the sheep.

    One of my goals in life is to shoot more people on purpose than I do by accident. So far, so good.

    I had the same reaction when I read the article. Shame on the author for naming any of the participants!

    At Levelland ISD, the armed staff were kept anonymous and only the Sheriff's Office, PD and a few school officials knew who they were for sure. Usually, if you have been aound School Staff a while, you can maybe figure out who could be, and you you would hope they aren't. The staff and teachers, coaches who are armed, are all very well vetted, and train on a regular basis. Four of my grandkids have gone to school there, two grand daughters still do.

    The main reason for anonomity, is so students won't know which teachers carry or don't carry, and be less tempted to make any plans to take a gun away from a teacher, or otherwise get a staff members gun. It also makes the kids more relaxed in class not knowing.
