I would never send my child to a school with a teacher packing heat. How in the world can you ever make sure it never gets misused? Wrestled from them by a student? Lost? Stolen? Or a teacher who is unbalanced themselves?
The scenarios can go on forever.
How about a student and a teacher having a gunfight and an innocent student gets killed.
How about the teacher misreading a situation and killing an innocent victim. Whatever a student gets the gun and then plans to shoot his entire class.
The idea is a bad one in my book and it points to hysteria. People think those school shootings could have been prevented and there is no way of knowing that.
