Teachers Should Not Carry Guns

My opinion is that teachers should not be allowed to carry current with the gun in the classroom.  I understand that these are violent and uncertain times, but weapons and children do not mix.  Let’s say you have a teacher that has a gun locked away in a gun cabinet, but the time you get the key to unlock the cabinet and then unlock the cabinet; chances are your classroom probably dead already.  I don’t think the focus should be as much about gun control as a mental health issue.  The problem lies with how we view people with mental illness.  We chastise people for having mental illness and then we call them weak for seeking counseling and medication.  We should encourage people to deal with their mental illness appropriately; it’s not their fault they have a mental, but their loved ones need to be extra vigilant with their care.
