I signed up within a few minutes of seeing the NRA speech.
I had this same thought.srothstein wrote:Think the problem of allowing a CHL to volunteer is in changing the law on working security. We could also work out the details on that, but it does require a legal change since a volunteer CHL cannot be there to work security (as we have already discussed for church security plans). That would be my fall back for the legislative session.

Many "Positions" of "Security" involve the "Security" Person doing other duties (which interferes with what they are there for in the first place). Such as Janitorial duties, grounds keeping, etc......
Employers don't like to see people sitting/walking around doing "nothing" (Real Security actually in action, working).
Kinda hard to observe/identify/engage a threat when you are actually unplugging the toilet.

Consider yourself pointed.
Why are they having such a hard time passing CHL carry on college campuses here in Texas?Charger wrote:I wouldnt say "it'll never happen", especially since its already happening in some places. I dont get the concern, and never have. People are allowed to carry a gun in the mall. They're allowed to carry a gun in a restaurant. What makes a school any different? If it were me I'd take each and every school board out of the decision making equation. Too many chefs spoil the soup and all. If its a public school then by state law:
a) CHLs are allowed to carry in them
b) the PTO is allowed to generate funds from parents and then install metal boxes containing a loaded weapon (preferably an ar type) and hand the combination to parents that have CHLs and have contributed, as well as staff. Geez, we allow those "in case of emergency break glass" boxes with axes. I think a shooter is more of an emergency. Big firepower without having to have anyone walking around with it sounds like a good idea to me.
c) the PTO is allowed to schedule volunteers who'se only purpose being at the school would be to be an armed CHL on site. I mean come on, the PTO at my girl's school already has anywhere from two to five of them at the school at any given time...they're just not armed.
