Is it finally time for teachers to take up firearms training in addition to all of our other duties?

I am "highly qualified" to carry a firearm in that environment and would welcome the opportunity to be able to actually protect my students from a threat such as Connecticut just experienced.

I really think that if teachers are allowed to do this they should be trained by the same people that train their police officers with an emphasis on marksmanship, safety, and legal repercussions/issues.

If properly done, with the use of frangible ammunition and extensive training, this could put an end to the senseless slaughter of our children.

The day is long over for our malls, schools and public spaces to be unprotected. We will continue to pay the price if we don't step up and take this responsibility seriously.
