Does that include when the "tyrannical vermin that have infested or invaded it" is the US?
1. If the closest police station is 30 mins away, why not open one closer? Sounds like the area is badly under-policed and the government need to take care of that.
2. Poor teachers. They have a tough enough job already, and people expect them to take on a vigilante role too? Yes, protecting kids is their responsibility but I think this takes it too far.
I can see why they reached this decision, but I don`t think it`s the right one. The message it gives to kids `it`s good to bring guns to school, just in case` is scary, and I really don`t think they have explored all avenues before coming to this drastic conclusion.
Someone else here mentioned tasers - a non-lethal yet debilitating weapon. Surely a more appropriate last resort than expecting a teacher to shoot to kill?
Now thats out of the way - I think that the real problem that America faces is fear. I understand that there have been tragic incidents in some of your schools however if you take each one of these incidents and compare that to the number of schools there are in the US, the chances of it happening to an individual school are increadably remote. However, arming a teaching staff, even a well trained staff, is going to significantly increase the chance of a death in that school.
"And americans wonder why so many people worldwide believe the stereotype of gun toting rednecks....."
That`s right. Keep believing it and spread the word. We are Americans. We are armed. We will kill. If you need help, call us. We work for free. We`ll usually even give you money and manpower to repair any collateral damage sustained by ridding your country of whatever tyrannical vermin have infested or invaded it.
Any way, I`m from Texas and although I`m in Austin; the most liberal place in the `South`, I can tell you from first hand experience that Texas is home to many of the most intelligent people in the world. Please don`t lump us together with a bunch of redneck stereotypes.
I`ve never even seen anyone wearing a cowboy hat.
FACT: Charles Whitman (texas college sniper circa 1966) Killed unopposed until a college professor fired back with his hunting rifle. Also students who had firearms close by got them and helped pin him until he could be killed. While he was being pinned, he could not rise up to take aim and kill more.
please excuse my english..
This just makes me think that the guns are going to be more widely available for students to steal...
This is a tough one.
I know I`m showing my age (Class of `86) and redneck upbringing (North Alabama), but when I was in high school, we brought guns to school all the time (well, not me personally, I didn`t own one). But lots of students did.
I mean, no one carried a gun into Algebra class, but we would often go out behind the football field to fire off a few rounds with our shop teacher and our football coach. It was fun. Who cares what a bunch of whiny-a$$ed liberals think? No one got shot at our school, most all the guys had knives at all times, or "ninja throwing stars" if you were in jr. high and into that sort of thing (I had the throwing knives, yay!).
Something in Georgia.
"primetimekin, everybody is a prisoner in that city. You dont have crime but you dont really have freedom or peace of mind."
Bull. I saw an interview and they all said they liked the new law.
You want to screw with those people you just light firecracker in the streets and they start killing each others.
see me after class
You`d be amazed how stupid the human race can truly be.
And then the teacher shoots...
It`s all about marketing.
Who was it?
Think about the childrens, even if you save their life do you really think they would get over watching their teacher killing a man in cold blood?
Looks like they want home scholling to become more popular... and next theya re going to remplace teachers with robots.
¡Viva el Capitalismo!
... or something of that sort. But that`s only my opinion.
closest my school has gotten to this was when my band teacher brought in a fake knife to scare us into being quite, but it looked very real
they could go past the spanking phase and just shoot someone if they dont listen to them.
total bad idea right there
