I wonder what the odds are that the staff will snap and shoot the kids?

you do what you gotta do sometimes. i see nothing wrong with someone caring that much for my kid's safety, mostly cuz momma and her .357 can't follow her kid around 24/7.

At one high school I attended we had Armed guards with high powered rifle. I see no problem in this.

>>>America, you scare the beejeezus outta me sometimes. <<<

You mean like this:
July 22, 2011: Confessed mass killer Anders Behring Breivik kills 77 in Norway in twin attacks: a bombing in downtown Oslo and a shooting massacre at a youth camp outside the capital. The self-styled anti-Muslim militant admitted both attacks.

Or this:
A 57-year-old Swiss man armed with weapons including a SIG-Sauer pistol and an assault rifle killed 14 people in a cantonal parliament building in the Swiss city of Zug. Friedrich Leibacher killed himself following the shootings, which also wounded 18 others. Leibacher had been angry over perceived mistreatment by government officials.

>>>What are the chances...<<<

Nothing. But how do you know you will not get killed driving to the store today in a car wreck? What will totally prevent this from happening? Nothing. What do we do to limit how often it happens? Drivers Ed, speeding tickets, licensing, road design, etc. But strangely we do not ban cars. Why not because, at least currently, the benefits outweigh the occasional accident.

Private Schools that do this, and there are several, have weighed the risk vs. reward and decided that it is more likely that an armed intruder will target the school killing and wounding many, than it is the same or greater number will be killed or injured by the circumstances you describe if teachers are trained and authorized top carry guns.

This is way better and more secure that gun free zones. I hate the sign at work that says guns are prohibited. You might as well invite the disgruntled ex employee or significant other to come right on in and spray your bullets around anywhere!

And no, you don't need fifty armed and untrained teachers forming a small militia in case of a problem. No, you just need one or two trained, capable, and accountable people. Once word gets out that we the people will fire back you'll see a drop in crime.

What are the chances that none of these teachers will lose it while armed? What are the chances that every single teacher will never have their weapon unattended and away from the kids' reach at all times? Armed teachers MAY be able to protect the kids from attackers, but who's going to make sure that the teachers (or their weapons) aren't going to harm the kids?

"That is ignoring the fact that most killings have been carried out with illegally-obtained weapons"
That is not correct. Currently, most handgun death in the US is suicide by legally purchased arms.
However, the key to gun control is not adding pressure to legit arms purchases.

The key is identifying a cutting off the source of illegal arms in order of most durable to least.

@randomxnp Oh and if you're going to be giving sage advice, don't insult the person. That will never make them listen No one has ever listened to someone who insults them. You're then just doing it to inflate your own ego on the internet. Which when you think about it is a very sad state of affairs for you.

@randomxnp Staff is singular, that's a very efficient faculty at the school, they're like the borg or something... A better construction would be "Staff Members are"... I still say "The staff" are not singular in this example and "are" would be a better construct although I concede if you think the staff is singular it's correct.

Keep children from buying their own guns? How exactly would you do that in a country of over 200-million guns? They can't even do that here where handguns are banned and have been horribly restricted since the early 20th century, and so there were vanishingly small numbers of legally-owned weapons at the time of the ban.

That is ignoring the fact that most killings have been carried out with illegally-obtained weapons or weapons owned by friends or family members even under current gun laws.

Sleepy Hallow

Teaching unions in several countries, including the USA, are far too powerful. They are the cause of the problems, whereby massive rises in funding have not resulted in any improvement. Where teachers cannot be fired for incompetence; hell in the USA the unions have supported teachers who have sexually abused their pupils.

No unions have been "destroyed". They have barely been curtailed in their militancy.

It is hilarious when the illiterate try to correct the literate. "Staff" is singular, so the sign is correct. Common use means that "are" would be allowable, but it is not grammatically correct.

They did miss out a full stop or semi-colon, but that is also allowable on a sign.
