Missouri bill considers armed teachers in classrooms


Welcome to my home state. : Freedom has not be forgotten here:

Although lawmakers failed to pass a bill that would override federal gun laws, the Republican-majority Legislature has approved and now forwarded part of that legislation to the governor’s office.

Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon will now decide whether teachers and other school personnel will be allowed: to have carry and conceal firearms while on school grounds,: reported: the Associated Press.

School officials would receive the same firearm training as law enforcement officers. Additionally, weapons would have to be kept on the individual’s person at all times.

That aspect of the bill continues to receive criticism and praise from Missouri residents.

The question I have is, should a person be required to surrender their right to defend themselves because of their job?

In some instances, it makes sense. : For example, if you’re working at a nuclear power plant, there are security requirements and a staff of heavily armed guards, so you’re protected.

But in a school, you don’t have that security. : So, you’re unguarded.

You should be free to protect yourself. : What say you?
