      Most school teachers don't have experience shooting guns and will probably miss their target when they shoot. This will just make things worse. It is best to leave the guns to the police.

    3. Colorado, Wyoming and North Dakota are weighing proposals that would allow guns in schools, in the hopes of avoiding future mass shootings.

      Schools don't need their staff to carry weapons to school. It would really frighten the children. Also, many teachers can be untrustworthy as they can take advantage of the weapon, and maybe threaten the kids. Why would you need guns anyways?

Purhcase metal detectors if you have to!

    4. Should we allow teachers to carry concealed weapons like hand guns? Why or why not?

For instance, there will be a fire drill once in a while, where teachers and students treat it as a real fire in the school.
