Teachers need to be armed with guns PDF E-mail

Dear Editor:

We spend hundreds of thousands on our schools -- grassed and irrigated school yards, sporting equipment, stadiums, security cameras, fire alarms, on and on.

But there are no weapons to protect our children and grandchildren in a town like ours, with a large school, hospital, nursing home and day care.

This is no reflection on our police or sheriff’s departments. They would respond to a shooter, but in the time they may get there it may be too late. I think teachers should have concealed weapon licenses, with the fortitude to use a weapon, the skill to use it and the fortitude to kill an intruder who is killing our children, teachers, cooks and maintenance men.

Our country isn’t Disneyland anymore.
