Should teachers carry guns? Show more Show less

With the rise of gun violence and school shootings, many people believe that the school environment can be safer for everyone if teachers carry guns and have a defensive weapon to use against school shooters and other school aggressors.

Yes, teachers should carry guns. Show more Show less

Schools don't have enough protection against unwanted, potentially dangerous strangers. Gun-carrying teachers can protect their students better.
