Not long after the tragedy, President Obama said of the Sandy Hook shooting, “If there is even one thing we can do to prevent another tragedy like this we should do it.”
There is one thing we can do: Allow teachers who volunteer for training to carry guns at school. Doing so will allow for immediate action against a school shooter; there will be no waiting for police to arrive. Each second that passes during a shooting means another life lost. Police are minutes away.
Allowing teachers who volunteer violates or infringes on no one’s rights. We can expect our teachers to be responsible with their firearms because we already know them to be responsible with our children.
