What would you think if your teacher was packing heat like the terminator? I'd think it was badass.

i don't think they should have guns... most of the teachers i've had were either fat or skinny and in terrible physical shape. a group of kids can overpower a single person if it comes to it.

teachers anymore...

yes i think they should since many students nowadays think of themselves as gangstahs' teachers with guns would probably teach them a lesson >.<

Hmm... I live in the Greater Houston Area... I think that this plan is acceptable for THIS school in particular because of it's small size. In a Texas school that small- the students and teachers- and everybody else would know each other well enough to say if they could trust teachers with firearms. And it looks like in the county, there were no naysayers.

However, In larger schools this would be an issue of student, faculty, and staff safety. Students would be within reach of a firearm, and the teachers would not receive the same amount of support from the local community.

Texas is hardly a liberal state when it comes to the general LEGAL population. Therefore, I can understand where the school and public is going with this policy.

Seriously...most of my teachers in my school have stressful lifes, messed up private life... and get pissed off easily *Remembers the time she got an ereaser and marker thrown at*...

They shoudn't own a gun...

and since they always forget there purse or car keys in the class and leave for lunch...I wouldn't want them losing or forgetting the gun...a disturbed kid could massacre us...

(Even though she/he locks it somewhere...we students always end up getting the key--trust me. )

HOUSTON (Reuters) - A Texas school district will let teachers bring guns to class this fall, the district's superintendent said on Friday, in what experts said appeared to be a first in the United States.

The board of the small rural Harrold Independent School District unanimously approved the plan and parents have not objected, said the district's superintendent, David Thweatt.

School experts backed Thweatt's claim that Harrold, a system of about 110 students 150 miles northwest of Fort Worth, may be the first to let teachers bring guns to the classroom.

Thweatt said it is a matter of safety.

"We have a lock-down situation, we have cameras, but the question we had to answer is, 'What if somebody gets in? What are we going to do?" he said. "It's just common sense."

Teachers who wish to bring guns will have to be certified to carry a concealed handgun in Texas and get crisis training and permission from school officials, he said.

Recent school shootings in the United States have prompted some calls for school officials to allow students and teachers to carry legally concealed weapons into classrooms.

The U.S. Congress once barred guns at schools nationwide, but the U.S. Supreme Court struck the law down, although state and local communities could adopt their own laws. Texas bars guns at schools without the school's permission.

this cannot be good :\

How many teachers out there are just itching to shoot at a couple of their problem students? I do not think we should give then an in to give in to temptation *nervous laugh* I hope there could another way to cut on school violence because this might be taking corporal punishment to a whole new level >.>


Fuck no, what if an angry student stole it from the teacher? That would make the school less safe. Gun control works, guns everywhere do not.

I agree, and not only that but most schools have policemen there now anyhow.... so no reason for a teacher to have that sort of weapon. If you really feel the need to arm teachers then give them a tazer -_- lol

Taser is just slightly better. I mean really, any good school admin would think "hmmm, high crime rate in area, must protect students....I KNOW LET'S GET METAL DETECTORS AND SECURITY GUARDS!"

I think this is the result of budget cuts and schools not being able to hire both.
