  1. The Gun Control Debate Thread - Say hello to my little thread

    Hmm. I think I misread part of his tweets. My bad. I thought he was just assuming any teacher with a gun would be highly trained by default. (There’s a lot of other nonsense in there though, lol.) anyway, I’m not crazy about the idea of teachers running around school with guns, but if they’re specially trained and the guns are somewhere safe and they have some sort of special mental check on them every so often, I’m open to the idea.
  2. The Gun Control Debate Thread - Say hello to my little thread

    Is there any reason to believe this would actually happen, especially if teachers already are allowed guns in a bunch of states and very few proponents have talked about requiring training or mental checks. I am kind of curious why you’re so supportive of this idea by the way, (you don’t have to answer of course, but I do find it a bit surprising coming from you unlike some of the more vocal gun rights posters)
  3. The Gun Control Debate Thread - Say hello to my little thread

    So all the talk about training and checking on teachers with guns was pointless. There doesn’t seem to be much support for the teachers with guns idea overall though (and does seem to be a lot of fear and outrage especially among teachers) despite the fact it’s legal in some places already.
  4. The Gun Control Debate Thread - Say hello to my little thread

    It sounds like it could be helpful in some individual situations. But I wonder how it would actually play itself out overall. Who keeps track of this? What regulations or rules are put in place to support this or will they just be an idea that gets thrown aside in the frenzy to arm teachers and others and instead schools end up like a town in a Wild West movie. What happens when politicians decide the teachers are being burdened with evil regulations or public schools and/or teachers have too much money? While I’m suomewhst open to the idea of teachers who want to help protect their students being allowed to use guns in school provided they have training, evaluations, etc, it’s hard not to notice the drooling mouths of the gun lobby and their servile lickspittle politicians waiting to exploit this and take advantage while not giving two ****s who they screw over or who gets killed because of it. That said it seems inevitable that we are headed towards some sort of implementation of this idea with the constant push for it on the right and I guess some in the middle, so perhaps we ought to tie it together with gun control in some way and try to get some good consensus and results.
