Arizona is Arming its Teachers

Arizona Senator Karen Johnson has recently introduced a law (SB1214) for that would allow our ‘Zonie teachers who have a CCW (Concealed Carry Weapon) Permit to carry their weapons onto high school and college campuses. Why? With the increased school violence, the idea is that if people know that people might be packing, they might be less likely to act a fool. Or at least that is my take on it.

So, what do you think? You think that allowing guns to be carried my teachers is going to allow kids easier access (the kids can just steal it off their teacher) to weapons or you think that it is going to create a reminder that if you bring a gun to school, that someone out there is probably going get their gun out and cap you?

I think that it is a good idea. And Robert A. Heinlein said it best when he said, An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.

With that said… check out this video here.

    It should be a law that ALL teachers are locked and loaded while on the school grounds. The example you gave about the teacher getting his or her gun swiped, could happen, but put yourself in the thiefs position for a moment…I can take this gun from my teacher and then I have 1, but EVERY other teacher is locked and loaded…maybe my logic is wrong, but I think it would deter more than promote a student to try and take a gun fom a teacher. Just my opinion though, I could be wrong.

    By the way, I want a Tank!

"Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country" - Hermann Goering
