Colorado School District Is Looking Arm Teachers With Firearms

We’ve suffered SO many fatal mass shootings in our churches, workplaces, nightclubs and schools that the argument for teachers packin’ heat has never been hotter.

In the wake of these traumatic events, many truly believe that lives could be saved if teachers and school officials had means of protecting themselves and others.

One Colorado school district is ready to commit to the practice according to ABCNews

The Hanover School District 28 board voted 3-2 to allow school employees to volunteer to be armed on the job after undergoing training.

The district’s two schools serve about 270 students about 30 miles southeast of Colorado Springs, and it takes law enforcement an average of 20 minutes to get there. The district currently shares an armed school resource officer with four other school districts.

Board member Michael Lawson backed the idea not only as way to protect students from a mass shooting, but also as protection against possible violence connected with nearby marijuana grows, which he believes are connected with foreign cartels, the Gazette of Colorado Springs reported

What do you think about this? Would you send your child to a school where teachers carry guns?
