In the 1970's there was a school shooting in Israel, they imediatley armed faculty and there has not been an incident yet. In one third of the schools in this country there is either an armed guard or armed faculty. There has not been any incidents in any of those faculties. Furthermore, the State Police fully agree that armed guards or faculty is the best solution.

Remember that all in Israel havebeenin the army. Israel is not at peace so why follow their example. I agree with the super and union president. Teacher should teach not be trained to kill. Ms. Rapp should say that upfront also. I don't want teachers to be part of a well trained milita.

So tell me how do you plan to handle a shooter? You going to hide under your desk? Go in the halls and put your head between your knees? Tell me I want to know? THE ONLY WAY YOU ARE GOING TO PROTECT THE KIDS FROM A SHOOTER WITH A GUN IS WITH ANOTHER GUN! Wake up warren!

I still see nothing wrong with faculty posessing a Tazer.

You handle a shooter by making sure that someone likely to shoot up a school can't have a gun. The "too many guns requires more guns" argument simply doesn't hold water. If teachers wanted to be law enforcement officers or soldiers, they wouldn't be teachers would they? The super doesn't want guns in the schools, the teachers don't want guns in the schools, and I don't want guns in the schools.

The Newtown shooter SHOT his way into the unarmed school. Guns for teachers and administrators. Hey, let's TRY it!

So, on the one hand, Rep. Lucas wants to place more responsibility on our teachers, then reduce the pension they have concistentl paid into. Who voted for this guy?

That is exactly what I wanted to hear from our school administration. Thank goodness he is sane. I will absolutely not allow teachers to be packing around my kids. Reconstructing entrances is the sound, logical path, as it is for any business or location that needs to be secure, or even making all exterior glass bullet proof. There are many things that can be done without more guns. Israel is a ridiculous example. Their country is no where near the norm since they are at constant war. Disarming the country except for hunting rifles and shotguns would go a long way, too. Notice I didn't take away your right to bear arms or protect your home.

PlayBall, 25 said to reconstruct building access so it can't be shot in. Learn something.

You learn something Brook. How interesting that the president has acted within a month's time that 20 white children were killed and yet 500 plus black inner-city kids in Chicago have been killed last year and cricket-cricket YOUR HERO DOES NOTHING!!! Impressive!

Oh PlayBall, where were the last 20 presidents on that issue. You can't focus that comment on just one president.

"Wanna be the lawyer for the dead child's parents? I sure would."

That seems a little morbid to me.

Not enacting executive orders to limit our second amendment rights, that's where the last 20 were.

If I were a teacher right now, I'd feel better if I was packing.

My ex-brother-in-law, teaches in Miami. He requested a riot helmet, a Kevlar vest, and would be glad to have a weapon.

His point is I need to be alive to help my kids if the unthinkable happens.

Oh blah, blah....are you suggesting that the 500 black kids in Chicago weren't killed? Are you suggesting that they weren't black? The guy you voted for has done NOTHING for Chicago inner-city violence.

Plus.....25, IF you're watching MSNBC and the real news MIGHT hurt Obama, you can always Google...."Chicago observes its 500th murder of 2012" dated 12/29/12.

Exactly 25, they are quick to blame a president that they don't like, but did they pronounce the same blame on a president that they did like. I bet not.

MTO, you quickly forget that our previous president didn't have too much problem stomping on our rights and the Constitution. Warrantless wiretaps, etc. YOu might also want to reexamine the details of the last 20 presidents. Not all were little angels, as your comment alludes to.

Jimmy, restricing gun ownership to hunting rifles and shotguns doesn't take away your right to protect your home or form a militia.
