'Should teachers be armed?' Fast Focus: Guns not the problem

January 20, 2013 

Why not? I think just the principal and substitute principal, maybe maintenance personnel, should have keys the room. I do not think the K-8 students need to see their teacher with a 9 mm on his or her hip.

It's not guns that we need protection from. It's the nuts and crazies that we need to protect our children and students from!
