I feel that if the teacher wants to they should go through rigorous training both mental and physical proven tests scoring very high in order to protect themselves and their students

@9NXD6YXWomen’s Equality from Oklahoma answered…1mo

Yes, if the teacher has followed all safety protocols and passed all state requirements for using and having a firearm.

@9N4P63CRepublican from Indiana answered…1mo

Yes, but this may increase the chance of shootings but it's the teacher's job to keep the students safe

@9N4MJZJTranshumanist from Virginia answered…1mo

I feel like teachers should be armed also to protect student just incase security is injured or killed but the gun should be used responsibly

@9N3NYRCRepublican from Wisconsin answered…1mo

Yes but only have those that are properly trained and hold a gun license

@9N3MQRWConstitution from Ohio answered…1mo

You should have someone know how to have a firearm and shoot it but if you have too many there may be more shootings at the school.

@9N3KWJ3Veteran from South Carolina answered…1mo

If it is in the best interest of safety, for example if a school has not resource officer , or is rural were emergency response is hours away.

@9N37H26Green from New York answered…1mo

Depends on your area if you are more likely to have a school shooting then you should have an emergency gun in place next to the teachers desk with a camera only on the gun the whole time but if not in a such dangerous place then no people would be more safe therefore less chance of a shooting

@9N36NSWWomen’s Equality from Idaho answered…1mo

No, there is no reason students should have to see their own teacher be armed and be scared the whole time they are at school.

@9N35LW8Transhumanist from Indiana answered…1mo

no because a teacher can get angry and turn on the school real quick.

@9N35BXFTranshumanist from Illinois answered…1mo

Not all teachers, but, at least have it in a safe and only, like a resource officer can have the key

Publicly funded resource officers should be assigned to schools i.e. police officers instead of randomly driving around patrolling and trying to extort money

@9MZPLK2Constitution from Louisiana answered…1mo

Teachers who want to carry a gun at school should be properly trained and allowed to carry guns for protection.

Yes, But each teacher should be required to take a course on shooting and score a certain percentage before being allowed to have a gun

If it is legally owned, and you are properly trained to carry and operate it.

@9MY6DJRAmerican from North Carolina answered…1mo

It depends on the teacher. I don't think they should be automatically issued a gun but if they want to seek out a gun and go through the rigorous testing for one that is fine with me

Having a security guard would be good but the core problem of school shootings aren't the guns but the mental health of students and finding a solution for that.

@9MWTWWYTranshumanist from New York answered…1mo

I don't think they should because so teachers are crazy. I think they should have trained officers.

No, install other precautions to keep gun violence out of schools

Teachers who had background checks and went through training should be able to carry guns at school or have a gun in a desk drawer which is locked.

Yes, but the teachers must have a background check and must go through a handgun class.

We should hire ex military veterans who are of sound mind to patrol the perimeters of the schools. And they should be compensated for there time served and for protecting our children.
