BBC NEWS | World | Americas | Guns for Texas school's teachers
"Teachers in one part of the US state of Texas are to be allowed to carry concealed firearms when the new school term opens this month."
What are peoples opinions on this?
Would you want you son/daughter sitting in a class with a gun just a few feet away?
Are more guns the solution?
"If something were to happen here, I'd much rather be calling a parent to tell them that their child is OK because we were able to protect them," Mr Thweatt said.
This seems like a very odd thing to say, it's a great bit of misdirection. "their child is OK because we were able to protect them" or "their child is OK because we were able to kill the other kid"
Anyway, i'm British, so havent touched a gun in my life (except a paintball gun ) and dont really have any urge to do so but, from my point of view it just seems incredible that somewhere someone has thought. "Ok kids are bringing guns into school, right well lets make it so there are already guns in the school."
Teachers arent perfect, how many shootings have been made possible cause the kid got into their parents gun lock-box? replace the word 'parents' with 'teachers'....
