Question of the Day
Would you prefer armed guards, armed teachers or neither in Ohio schools?
Comment: At the least tasers. I don't know if guns would be the best thing but tasers could definitly stop a lunatic gunman. from germantown, ohio by zach
Comment: If there are only one or two guards, then they can't be everywhere. Arm every teacher. I'd send my kids there and wouldn't complain one bit to pay taxes to train/arm them. from Troy, Ohio by Jennifer
Comment: Both armed guards and trained armed teachers. Only teachers with concealed carry permits and training in how to use their weapon in a delicate environment. from Bellbrook, OH by Mark
Comment: As a Mother I hate the fact of sending my sons off to school everyday...a place that is not protected at all. I would feel much better if I knew there were teachers that had the proper training that were in the school when seconds count. I do not like the fact that someone could be in that school with the intent to hurt children and have to wait the time (no matter how short they say it is) for the police to respond and get the situation under control. from Huber Heights, Ohio by Pam
Comment: Police or military ONLY. Someone who is fully trained and has real life experience in a crisis situation. from Springboro Ohio by Aimee
Comment: Armed teachers should be cheaper. Both would be best! from Beavercreek, OH by Jeff
Comment: I believe that some form of security may be merited such as Security guards. The negative to giving teachers guns is that they should never be put in a position of having to shoot another human being. Plus the availability issue arises where would a teacher be able to reach a gun and it still be in a safe place away from little hands? This must be left to the people who are experienced and trained for such exercises. from Carlisle Ohio by Brenda
Comment: Armed Teachers would be cheaper. Armed Guards would take funding from other school projects. Personally I would like to see retired or unemployed veterans volunteer time to protect our children. from greenville, oh by Karyl
Comment: Armed guards or armed teachers! from Huber Heights Oh by Monica
Comment: I think arming the teachers is also a good idea to but they wouldn't have as much experince as amed gaurd might. from Dayton/ohio by Devon
Comment: a guard is mobile and is there if and when the sitation arises and they would have the right mind set for whatever happens and i dont think teachers sitting in one place would be aware of the situatuin till after the fact. from C.C. Ohio by Duane
Comment: Waste of resources. from New Carlisle by Jimmy Rustles
Comment: Both, Armed Teachers and Guards! from New Carlisle, OH by eric-allen
Comment: BOTH Armed gaurds and teachers from Dayton Oh by Anthony
Comment: Many school systems cannot afford armed guards, however, they are already staffed with teachers. With the proper training, arming our teachers will keep our children safer! from St. Marys by Rachel
Comment: This issue has gotten way out of hand. The purpose of a gun is to kill, nothing more nothing less. What kind of message does this send if everybody is armed to the hilt? What it means is that everybody lives their life out of fear. from Dayton OH by AJ
Comment: We must do a better job in identifing individauls with mental health problems. How many, right now are about to act. I do not hear any talk about this issue, it's not guns, it's crazy people. Remember in the 50's and 60's we closed all mental hospitals and put the patients on the street. Is it any wonder.!!! from St. Paris, Ohio by Woodrow
Comment: The only personnel that should be allowed to be armed with deadly weapons around our children are trained security and law enforcement personnel. We should fund more positions for these in our schools. Arming a teacher who has minimal training at best is doing nothing but making a weapon available to someone who could take it from them. Giving a teacher a taser, maybe, but their primary concern should continue to be educating. from Dayton Ohio by Mike
Comment: I think arming our teachers is a great idea. We protect our money with guns. Our children are more important than our money. The only thing to stop a BAD guy with a gun is a GOOD guy with one!! from Eaton, OH by Jennifer
Comment: Teachers should not have guns in schools. Some teachers already go to far with there tempers like duct taping the child and so on. So what would one of these teachers do if they had a gun in the classroom. from Piqua by Matthew
Comment: our schools should be as safe as our airports,state and Government offices,perhaps even safer.i beleave it is time to have armed guards and even some teachers in schools. from springfied,ohio by david
Comment: if you get past the emotional aspect, it is the most practical solution. one that may actually work from troy oh by mark
Comment: Honestly I don't think they should because I agree with the substitute teacher you never know whether the teacher Is having a bad day and they can turn in a heartbeat just like anybody else just because they are teachers doesnt make them perefect it just doesn't so no I really hope that they don't pass this decision from Xenia ohio by Tiffany
Comment: Colunbine had armed guards and it made no difference. Teachers being armed with a hand gun is going to stop someone who has an assault weapon. from Springboro! OH by Leslie
Comment: If the teachers had CCW (concealed carry weapons) Chances are they would never need to use them, the threat of armed teachers would be deterrent enough to prevent these mass shootings. from Fairborn by Aaron
Comment: Medal detectors will not work, they will only let the unarmed teachers and administrators that someone is in the building with something medal. from New Lebanon, OH by Ray
Comment: Both armed guards and armed teachers. For the teachers, the weapons would need to be in a lock box or something. from Centerville, OH by Amy
Comment: I have taught for eleven years. I did not become a police officer, nor did I join the military and there is NO WAY I could handle a gun. I love my coworkers dearly, but I can only think of ONE staff member I'd feel comfortable working with and knowing he was armed. That is only because he has military training (he's in Air Force Reserves), but even in that scenario I am terribly concerned about students getting a hold of a gun at school. If we HAD to have armed people in the building I would hope that it would be a police officer. If teachers are ever required to have guns in their possession I will be ending my teaching career and my own children will be homeschooled. from Miamisburg, OH by Jen
Comment: Crazy people don't attack police station's for a reason from Tipp City, OH by Woody
Comment: More effective would be to allow all CCW license holders to carry a concealed weapon in schools (teachers, parents, administrators, etc.). from Versailles, Ohio by Nick
Comment: they need to let the teachers who are willing to carry do so
Comment: what needs to happen is we need to get rid of the gun free zones they make for soft targets the only way to curb this violence is to be a hard target and enforce the laws already on the books the first charge that gets dropped are the gun charges on criminals what happened to the mandatory 5 or 8 years for using a gun during a crime from dayton by taxpayer
Comment: Teachers are in every classroom. With proper training a lot of this can be stopped. from Centerville, Oh by Bill
Comment: It's simple, I think parents have to check what their daughters and sons bring to school! no matter what age they have, they still living under parents roof. from Dayton/Oh by Jorge
