Laurens County, a rural community 2.5 hours south of Atlanta is making history in the state of Georgia, by adopting extraordinary school safety measures, to protect children from harm.

It is the first school district in the state to put guns in the hands of some of its teachers and staff members. Outside every school building in the county is a yellow sign that reads, in part: “Warning. Staff members are armed and trained. Any attempt to harm children will be met with deadly force.”

I've been thinking about this a little.

My thoughts are that we need to stop saying that we're "arming teachers." We need to say that we are allowing teachers to be armed or carry concealed if they want and meet the requirements of the school district or whatever, but I think we need to stop saying that we are "arming teachers." Kind of like saying high capacity magazines versus standard capacity. I think it gives the wrong message and many (anti gun nuts) usually completely misunderstand and think that the school is actually giving guns to some or all of the teachers without any training or licenses or whatever.

I personally have never used the phrasing of "arming teachers". I have always said that teachers and others who are law abiding should be allowed to defend themselves (and consequently others) by arming themselves...if they so choose. I'm not advocating ANYONE carry a weapon who makes the choice that they do not want to. But I do believe that those who wish to take responsibility for their own safety, not be denied the most effective means of providing that safety.

100% agree.

A) Great that they armed only "some", aka those who are capable. No point in arming scared-as-poop libtards, they'd only cause harm.
B) Love the signs. They should improve them with some skulls and crossbones. :)
C) Remember the armed teacher poster from way back? :D
