    No you didn't say me, but I am very critical of teachers unions and the way that most educators think. I have three teachers in my immediate family and I tell them all the time regarding the things I disagree with. Teaching is a great profession (I would be happy if my daughters grow up to be educators). But they don't produce capital, get summers off, a pension, great benefits and have tenure. Do I feel sorry for the criticism the profession has had, nope. Does that make me a teacher hater?

    Good teachers don't get summers off. Good teachers spend that time taking classes and/or teaching. Many have to work second jobs in addition. Now, if you don't think they deserve benefits and pension, yes, I suppose that does make you a "teacher hater' (your words, not mine).

    Agreed. And anyway, I would disagree with jared's contention that teachers don't create capital. By creating a smarter workforce that can get a better job with better pay than they would otherwise, they increase the amount of demand in the economy, which leads to the creation of capital.

    Im fine with benefits. As far as pensions, that depends on how much. I don't get a pension, I contribute to a 401k and an Ira which my company gives a 2% match. They should be expected to fund a good amount of their retirement.

    By that standard, our teachers are failing...but it's ok, their jobs are safe, because they cant be fired, thanks to that union. And how come they never trot out the union salaries when they talk about how badly teachers are paid? Maybe that's where their pay went.

    As far as arming teachers, NEVER. Guards or police officers, ok, but unless the teacher has a ccp, no thanks.

    Pretty much. It's not rocket science. Although, I would definately recommend as much practice time as you can get in order to become proficient. Just like any other acquired skill, practice makes perfect.
    I'd think it's more complicated than shooting at a deer that poses no threat to you. You choose to go out and kill those animals for your own purposes. It's 1,000,000% different to shoot and kill someone who is looking to mass kill you and others in a split second (I would think).

    There is NO way all teachers would be able to not only holster a weapon but use it to kill someone in front of their children.

    No-one is suggesting that teachers would be forced to carry. It's being proposed as an option for those in SC.
    I wasn't necessarily talking about the SC amendment. I've seen other people's opinions and they talk about arming the entire staff in each school.

    That solves several problems: you contribute to the federal budget (increased revenue), you pay for luxury and unnecessary items, you still have the 2nd amendment protected, and you probably have less of those "oh look at the cool semi-automatic assault rifle I have. I may have a small d**** but I got a big a**weapon".

    EDIT: FH - check the profanity filter. I edited my post. It let a couple words through.
    I got a better idea, take the taxes that are going to these human slaughter houses, called abortion clinics, and use that money to arm people at our schools to protect our children, rather than slaughtering them.

    I am not answering that question about the insane part. I leave that up to Irish.

    But aren't you the one constantly badgering the police and how brutal they are and what kind of police state we are living in. Now you want these cops in our schools. What if they have suspicion and search someone? Are you ragging then on illegal searches without a warrant?

    Or are they just there when something happens and they can shoot around as well?

    And what about your notion with too much government? Now you want to use government to solve a problem which the private sector has created because of the lack of regulation?

    Very good point, and there are alot in law enforcement that agree with you. Below is a link to a transcript to a police meeting where they discuss this. They also discuss that the worst is yet to come. The tragic loss of life in CT pales in comparrison to Beslan, and there is little doubt if precautions are not soon put in place you are going to start seeing their promises of such attacks carried out here in the states. Very interesting read, and great analogy. Worth the time to read this article.
