Yes, provided that they are properly trained, but I would prefer that schools hire professionally trained on-site security guards instead.

Having a cop in school to interact with the students, but also trained and armed. This will help the students have a better relation with cops.

No, because this would increase the risk of accidental shootings, so we should hire professionally trained security guards instead

Yes, all teachers should be required to carry a gun and know how to use it.

@92Z8JX9 from Pennsylvania answered…9mos

This should be decided by the school in question whether to allow or deny.

@92XHZPP from Missouri answered…9mos

yes, but it should not be publicly known to anyone but the school board and police as well as should have to do mandatory monthly training and should only be volunteered for

@92SYWMQ from Kentucky answered…9mos

yes, but they should be required training and have a place to put it.

@92NYL55 from Indiana answered…9mos

NO, teachers should not be allowed to carry guns at school because teachers come to school to teach to educate the students not to carry violence around the campus.

@92K69KR from Oklahoma answered…10mos

No, hire professionally trained security guards instead of giving random teachers guns so that there will be a much more unlikely chance of any accidental shootings happening

@92HLYZH answered…10mos

Allowed, yes. Required, no. We need to focus on empowering our teachers to teach and focus on reducing the causes of school shootings rather than stopping them once they start.

@8ZNYXZQ from Missouri answered…11mos

Yes, schools should let teachers carry guns but only if they deem it is necessary - should have safety on and/or out of site during school

@8ZGPKQP from Washington answered…11mos

i would say yes because you never know because if there was a school shooting teachers would be there to help out but at the same time its a risk of there lives so no at the same time.

I believe it sounds like a good idea, but no in a teachers hand. We have policemen who would love to keep our schools safe.
