Reply Thomas Hughes says: November 18, 2019 at 11:20 pm When teachers had paddles they didn't even think about needing a gun. The paddle stopped rampage violence before the foolish thought could germinate. Reply Dearly Diane says: November 18, 2019 at 11:25 pm Teachers are rarely the targets. Bullies are. Reply Conner Dent says: November 18, 2019 at 11:25 pm You can thank republicans and the NRA for this! Reply GenericName007 says: November 18, 2019 at 11:26 pm Are they also teaching them how to shoot a kid, more specifically a kid they may very well have known or taught for a couple years? Some teachers get real close with the kids they teach, almost like your own kid, knowing how to shoot and being able to pull the trigger in that circumstance are two very different things. Reply tonak1 says: November 18, 2019 at 11:27 pm Finally a logical solution to the school shootings. Multiple armed but unknown "protectors" are a proper response and their presence would actually dissuade potential shooters. Reply Jam-rock Rider says: November 18, 2019 at 11:27 pm 10th grader closes backpack 10secs before the bell Teacher cocking pistol “You haven’t been dismissed yet.” Reply Brazy Cinco says: November 18, 2019 at 11:28 pm All you need to do is look at the statistics. Countries with less guns have less shootings. Availability and easy access plays a huge role. Republicans are just stupid. 6 more shootings before the year ends wouldn't even change their minds. Reply Ro G says: November 18, 2019 at 11:28 pm Look at the lady at 1:43. Now you tell me…is she ready to shoot someone in defense of children? Or is she more likely to get shot herself?Back to the drawing board, folks. Reply Scan says: November 18, 2019 at 11:29 pm 100% a teacher will be shot by police who think they are the shooter, MORE GUNS! lol America… Wake up… Reply P J says: November 18, 2019 at 11:30 pm Whats next?

Well done America Reply Michael Humphrey says: November 18, 2019 at 11:31 pm …and more tragedies are likely to follow thanks to this latest development. Reply Silky Johnson says: November 18, 2019 at 11:32 pm Common sense ! It takes a "good guy" (or good gal !) With a gun to stop a "bad guy" with a gun ! The knowledge that the school or other institution has ARMED STAFF will probably be deterrent enough for a would be shooter . Bet shootings in Utah will plummet , a wise ldea ! DO NOT let the Elite disarm you , America ! The wicked would REALLY come out in force then , why not ? They would know you are now defenceless – not in THESE classrooms ! Way to go Utah , Way to go Sheriff Smith !!! Reply Jam-rock Rider says: November 18, 2019 at 11:34 pm This is stupid. Teachers will die. School shooters have a plan. Now they’ll just make sure the closest teacher is the first down. Reply Darlene James says: November 18, 2019 at 11:41 pm Teachers are not soldiers. They shouldn't have guns in the classroom. Reply Stan Schurman says: November 18, 2019 at 11:43 pm Only in the f**ked up USA would teachers have to have gun training. Reply John Watt says: November 18, 2019 at 11:43 pm There already has been an "accidental discharge" of a gun by a teacher in an American school. Reply strzaskany alf says: November 18, 2019 at 11:44 pm Europe – no running in school!USA – no full auto in school! Reply Jam Who says: November 18, 2019 at 11:45 pm Good people with guns save more lives than mentally ill people with guns take. This is a common sense approach to helping stop active shooters in schools. More laws will change nothing bc criminals don't obey laws. No such thing as a common sense gun law. Reply Liv3 Ent says: November 18, 2019 at 11:48 pm Next, the students will demands they can carry guns to school too…. 🤷 Reply DestructableMe says: November 18, 2019 at 11:53 pm "Billy get down, I have to shoot Timmy!"

Reply B E says: November 18, 2019 at 11:57 pm Yeah. No young physically fit student could ever possibly disarm a fat old teacher, shoot them and have a new fun weapon to play with. Right? 😉 Reply Kathleen Hope Romance and Erotica Audio Books says: November 18, 2019 at 11:57 pm The solution to this issue is not more guns. The solution is less guns. All we have to do is look at other countries and follow their example. How is that so hard to understand Reply TrixiLovesYou says: November 18, 2019 at 11:59 pm Let's see how long this goes until a teacher shoots up a school. You just don't get it. Reply maudlyn isaac says: November 19, 2019 at 12:03 am im looking on very closely to see if black people are their target as they have always been throughout history.

The Truth is Teachers take part in Gun Training to protect from MSNBCannibal attacks Reply Tom Bleier says: November 19, 2019 at 12:13 am Look out if you are a young black teacher carrying a gun. Chances are you will die. Reply andtam008 says: November 19, 2019 at 12:19 am The teacher needs to wear a bullet proof vest in the classroom too. Safety first! Or, even better, we can build a bunker in the classroom, so the teacher can take cover. Reply acnyc 11 says: November 19, 2019 at 12:23 am This will not go well. Reply S.

Reply Optical Popsicle says: November 19, 2019 at 12:44 am The bottom line is… God Bless Teachers!!! Reply Norma Woods says: November 19, 2019 at 12:49 am Feeling sorry for the students!!! This is crazy!!! Reply Christian 153 says: November 19, 2019 at 12:50 am And how many mass shootings in Utah schools in the last 30 years? 0. Reply ruth depew says: November 19, 2019 at 12:53 am I think teachers should have guns in the classroom for the sole purpose of drawing the active shooter's fire to give more students a chance of escape. I am totally opposed to those guns having any ammunition in them to keep teachers from accidentally shooting students, which is the most likely outcome. Reply Robert C Hodge says: November 19, 2019 at 1:14 am It isn't all of America who think more guns are the answer. It is Comrade Bonespurs and the Goons of Putins (GOP) World.My first amendment power does not require my having a gun to get my way. Reason and Logic will endure after all the ammunition has been spent and Reason and Logic will be all we have left to work with. Why wait? Books make people smarter. Guns always end in death and tears. Reply CornPop Dude says: November 19, 2019 at 1:19 am Schools are gun free zones, there is no need for this. Reply TheKyubiisaan says: November 19, 2019 at 1:25 am If only there was an easier way t-[Comment blocked in your area by the NRA] Reply hung well says: November 19, 2019 at 1:29 am I'm guessing when the first teacher with a gun gets shot by the cops they will rethink this stupid move. Reply Aaron says: November 19, 2019 at 1:31 am Give everyone a gun, then no one will ever get shot. Just like the ol' west. Reply Annie Stokes says: November 19, 2019 at 1:36 am If teachers need guns to protect themselves from students with guns, then students with guns have to protect themselves from teachers with guns, so if everybody's got a gun then nobody will use their guns because everybody has guns! BRILLIANT. I mean, just look at how well that has worked in the USA. It's not like people walk into schools and open fire. Reply V says: November 19, 2019 at 1:38 am Moscow Mitch does nothing. The National Russian Association is more important. Reply Yve Bella says: November 19, 2019 at 1:39 am 🗣Look, Ma, teachers learning how to shoot! More money for the NRA🤷♀️ Reply Marius Thefaker says: November 19, 2019 at 1:52 am Not so hard to disarm a teacher when they spend a good deal of their time with their back to the class… Reply Blade Runner says: November 19, 2019 at 1:59 am those that shoot others without a chance of escaping punishment and then shoot themselves can hardly be deterred by an armed militia. we would have to pass laws that permitted shooting first and asking questions later. this smacks of archie bunker's suggestion to pass out pistols to all passengers as a pre-flight requirement in order to discourage hijackings. Reply Gscalenut says: November 19, 2019 at 2:19 am Just what we need students caught between a firefight with a teacher and a gun shooter. Reply Gscalenut says: November 19, 2019 at 2:20 am In the time she took to aim and shoot she and her entire class would be dead. Reply Gscalenut says: November 19, 2019 at 2:22 am With teachers being armed then mass shooters will become snipers rather than entering the school grounds. Reply Gscalenut says: November 19, 2019 at 2:24 am Who will be the first teacher with a gun that is killed by police in a friendly fire incident? Reply John S. Greene says: November 19, 2019 at 2:30 am The United States are so messed up. Love your gun…..be same the children. Have young people grow up in fear. All of rights of gun owners. Bring back the right to sue gun companies and ban war guns. Reply rockerdude8000 says: November 19, 2019 at 2:35 am Lies California is perfect and has no crime because they have common sense gun control. This is a Russian troll fake news story that being used to display the greatest place in the United States as less than what it is perfect.

An armed civilian stopped the walmart shooter today.👍👍👍🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 Reply Jasper Perrywinkle says: November 19, 2019 at 3:16 am Liberals should do a bond initiative to pay for metal detectors and armed guards so the liberal politicians can use the money for illegals. 👍 Reply Supreme Williams says: November 19, 2019 at 3:54 am What happens when a teacher shoots the wrong child? Or if students get a hold of one of these guns? 🤦🏽♂️🤦🏽♂️ Reply HoshiReed says: November 19, 2019 at 4:01 am So why not make it a law. To own a gun you must first have background check, mental health check, and gun classes. Gun safety tests renewed every 2 years or you can't have a gun.Much better than going nuclear and say you can only have a gun if it is stored at a registered militia site. Reply Ultra Overlord X says: November 19, 2019 at 4:22 am So you want to use guns to prevent school shooting only to provoke and cause more? Don't see how this is gonna work but hey, do what you gotta do in a country like America I guess. Reply B K says: November 19, 2019 at 4:39 am They should also really get body armor/vests in every classroom and start having drills for kids on how to quickly put it on.

Reply Max Covfefe says: November 19, 2019 at 5:33 am In a small town where everyone knows everybody, a community can maybe ban together for training and have a plan. That said, I don't know everybody in my school district. That's a lot of unknown variables I wouldn't wanna send any kid into. Reply peacefulheart says: November 19, 2019 at 5:49 am If cops often struggle handling a shooter, what makes you think teacher's will handle it better? When the perpetrator knows you have a gun too, you suddenly become a bigger target, as they either see you as a threat they need to eliminate first, or they decide to challenge you. Let's start to fix this problem at least with metal detectors at the entry points. Reply Jule S says: November 19, 2019 at 6:12 am These teachers would be killed before they unholstered their guns. IF we're putting armed personnel in our schools, they had better be trained officers or former military members. Reply Junior Harry says: November 19, 2019 at 6:59 am Here is another scenario.The first person the school shooter would probably start shooting is the school teachers, because the school shooter now know that the school teachers are armed with a gun. Then the school shooter will proceed to shoot the school students.👍. Reply kineticdeath says: November 19, 2019 at 7:04 am wont help, they are still just human and they will only end up being the first to die if someone really wants to shoot up a school. Reply Rick Sanchez says: November 19, 2019 at 7:43 am Next idea will be students to take gun training to stop shootings… this is pathetic America and there are people who are still defending gund while kids are dying daily.

Reply Aramai Jonassi says: November 19, 2019 at 1:00 pm If it's already a law that teachers can take guns to schools, they might as well be trained.

Reply zadose says: November 20, 2019 at 5:19 pm When someone is pushed too far, they can snap….. Especially in schools where no one cares about bullying….. the media like cnn even mocks bullying done to white people or republicans….. when you make fun of a victim like that, they can snap. An Asian kid shot up a school a few days ago, probably from bullying, school or parental pressure, who knows….. Cyberbullying is ruthless.
