It is a good thing, and I for one ain't wringing my hands in worry, about some teacher having an AD or showing their gun. If it happens then it happens; but that is still better than leaving the school wide open to assaults by shooters.
Guns have only 2 enemies, rust and politicians.
You don't shoot to kill, you shoot to stay alive.
Assault is a behavior not a device, 69,997,987 firearms owners killed no one yesterday
At some point, even the most anti-gun educator MUST realize that a 'GUN FREE ZONE' sign protects no one. If not, they shouldn't be called educators.
Despite the media and liberal hype, the incidence of school shootings is very low, so schools play the odds that there won't be a shooting, and if there is it won't be at their school.
The signs are there because the school district sees frothing liberals as more of a problem than school shooters.
Most stereotypes come from how you treated the last person who didn't know you.
I had an anti gunner say something similar to me in Ohio, that CC's should have the same number of range hours that a cop has to have. I replied that most of the LE training are things like vehicle stops, etc, that don't apply to civilians. I then tried to compromise with the person and said, "but assuming you do require civilians to have the same training as cops, are you going to allow civilians to carry everyplace cops are allowed to carry?" This would basically nullify the so called no guns zones for civilians, because LE is exempt from them. Of course the answer was no. For an anti gunner compromise means
You do what I want now, I give you nothing in return. Later on when what you caved in on doesn't work, I will ask for even more.
My county, Nassau, had the School Superintendent say no. Not arming teachers.
Now, our sheriff has to come up with additional money if we are to have more than one officer per school.

IIRC OH, like some other States that (now) allow staff to be armed on campus, leave it up to the individual school boards to make the decision as to if the staff can carry or not
The state here actually passed a law that set up and maintains the arm a teacher program across the entire state. So far half of the counties in Florida have chosen to participate and put armed teachers in the classroom.
I see gun control as driving an ambulance to the bottom of a cliff when we should be building a fence at the top!
