I believe that this is a bad idea because, of the circumstances. What I mean is that this is similar to fighting fire with fire, which can backfire. Another reason is that we should focus on gun laws and restrictions, instead of focusing on who should have a gun.
2/26/2018 09:08:44 am
I agree and disagree with you. I agree that we should have gun laws and restrictions but i believe we should also focus on who gets a gun. We should have a law or restriction on who could get a gun.

Teachers with military training could be possible to carry weapons and nobody knows would actually be smart in my opinion like having a "GI. Joe" protecting students. Now every teacher having one would not be safe because there's always an outlier and it could be some crazy teachers.
2/23/2018 02:04:02 pm
i feel like jakoby has a point but i dont think that teachers should have be able to have the weapon on their hip but they should have it locked up somewhere
2/26/2018 09:11:16 am
I understand exactly where you're coming from, however that action could turn into an even more deadly situation in which could put even more lives in danger and eliminate the whole safety purpose. For an example teachers and/or coaches could put an end to same amount of lives and/or more for reasons like, having mental health or just having a bad day.

I think giving guns only to teachers with special training is a bad idea. This is not the way to prevent shootings at school because if you think about it can get a lot worse. More people will get wounded or kill. Everyone cannot be trusted and giving guns to those people will put students in danger. I believe that preventing shootings in school is to stop bullying kids because if you notice the ones who get bully are the one causing the shootings.

I agree with you because giving the teachers guns, does not solve the problem at all. The issue is bullying! Bullying is what is leading these teens to shoot up their school. The rate of school shootings may go down.
2/26/2018 09:11:43 am
I agree with Jessica that giving guns to teachers can make the situation worse than what it is because a bullet has no name to it so can wound anyone in that area even if the shooter was aiming for someone else. 9 time out of a ten if two people have a gun it will result in a shoot out. Just because the teacher has a gun don't mean the shooter will get scared and put down their gun. Why get scared that the next person has a gun when they also have their's on them locked and loaded ? As she stated above, if school shootings is wanted to be put to an end then all school administrators and faculty members need to take bullying more seriously and deal with the situations in an appropriate disciplinary manner.
Yire Sanchez P:1
2/22/2018 08:41:00 am
I believe that the idea of giving teachers a gun to protect their students in case of a school shooting is wrong. First, I as a student I would not feel safe knowing that some of my teachers have a gun in possession. Even if a teacher has special and military training I still would not feel safe because us as students and others do not know what teachers sometimes go through and do not know what they are thinking, the own teachers with special training might even shoot there own students because they are probably having personal problems or they just get agitated or can not handle students being out of hand.
2/26/2018 09:09:32 am
I agree with Yire, because I would not feel safe as well if my teacher had guns. Nor do I believe that my dad would feel safe about it. I also agree with the point Yire made about not knowing what the teacher is going through. The teacher could have had an extremely bad day, and what little mistake could lead to a chaotic outburst.
2/26/2018 09:18:50 am
I agree with the statement that Talisha and yire made. Personally i myself would not feel safe if my teachers where armed they both made very good points on why this is not the best way to prevent school shootings . Adding on i think this problem could be solved by having security officers in schools who have had the proper weapon training just keeping watch and maintaining peace on campus
Jason Sandoval p.1
2/22/2018 08:41:18 am
I believe this is a bad idea because what if the teachers have the same intentions as a student who wants to shoot up a school. It would be easy for them to get the gun they have and shoot up their entire classroom. I also believe this is a good idea because if a shooter actually does end up going to the school to kill people the teacher with the gun can easily shoot him to prevent many lives from getting taken.
2/26/2018 09:12:21 am
I believe that the NRA should try to control gun use instead of arming more teachers. More guns is only going to cause more havoc.
Ulices Luna Per 2
2/26/2018 09:12:53 am
I agree with Jason because a teacher can have the same intentions as a student and if a teacher one is irritated with the class he she could go crazy and shoot the students. I agree that teachers have to have some kind of protections against armed shooters.

What trump is saying is crazy and it will also coast a lot of money, but I think it might keep us safe. There is nothing we can do because if the US band guns people will find a way to get them. I feel like gun should not be sold to everyone, only sold to people that have no problems mentally and a clean record as it is now and you need to be 25 and older.
Bryan Rivas P.2
2/26/2018 09:11:37 am
I kind of agree with your stance Sebastian. I feel that it is cray but it still isn't something we should shy away from. Yes the cost of the guns will be substantial but, think of the benefits. I agree that with the implementations of firearms in schools by teachers will possibly change the way school shootings happen. The first responders usually take a while for arrival and teachers and staff having some type of firearm and training with deter the shooter. Other than that note I completely agree with you.
Prisila Martinez P.1
2/22/2018 08:45:32 am
In my point of view, giving teachers and coaches "special training" to hold a gun is peer no sense. Trump should think before opening his mouth, teachers should be focusing on giving us education than be prepared on killing a shooter. We shouldn't be having this problem, Trump needs a better idea period.
Jason lozano P1
2/22/2018 08:47:10 am
i believe that giving a teacher who is trained a gun to protect the kids in school is a both good and bad idea because first it would be okay because he would be able to save students in a school shooting. i also believe it is bad too because then how would you know if you should trust the person with the gun or not also it would be easy for him to shoot the school.
Andy Palacios per1
2/22/2018 08:47:29 am
I think giving a gun to a teachers is a bad idea.Some might need the gun but some school don't.Trump say that only teachers with special training should have a gun in school but I think its a bad idea.

Are you kidding me!?! Giving teachers guns will be the solution Trump!?! You have no brain Trump you can't think, that's going to make things even more worse. Enough is enough, we need to ban guns, and we also need a new president, because America will be the problem to the world, and i'm tried of Donald Trump making terrible decision.
2/22/2018 08:51:09 am
I believe that trumps decision on teachers with special training allowed to have guns is a bad idea. It is a bad idea because it can backfire and is not safe for teachers to carry guns around school It can be hard for students to know that their teachers carry guns around class or around school campus.
2/22/2018 08:56:26 am
I believe that having guns only makes things worse. Sooner or later a teacher will loose control and end up shooting a student either because of a student acting up or things going on with the teacher out of school. If other people have been shooting students and people for no reason what makes someone think that a teacher wont. Teachers shouldn't have guns regardless if they've had training or not because every human messes up weather on purpose or accident.
2/22/2018 08:59:29 am
I don't think having teachers with guns will be a good idea because instead of them thinking that having teachers with guns at school will stop kids from bringing guns and attacking people at schools it won't it will make the situation worst and kids nowadays will feel that they need to bring guns to school and that might can cause harm to the teachers some students may want to do something to a teacher anyways so in my opinion i don't think it's a good idea for teachers to be able to have a gun at school because i think it's gonna cause conflict instead of getting rid of the problems they're trying to get rid of .
2/22/2018 10:40:23 am
I believe that Trump's idea is not good. Teachers having guns could create more issues in some schools. If there is students with mental illnesses and the teacher has a gun then it is easy for the student to have access to the gun. Therefore, teachers should not have guns.
2/22/2018 10:40:29 am
personally i think if qualified teachers where allowed to have weapons it would be the safest bet , rather than allowing every teacher to be armed. same way in the medical field they do not allow any random individual to certified as a doctor it takes years of training and studying so if this can be implied on teachers learning the right ways to handle themselves with fire arms then so be it.
Joshua Quintanilla Period 2
2/22/2018 10:43:00 am
I personally believe that what Donald Trump is proposing in teachers to be able to carry a gun with special training is wrong. For the school community I know I would not feel safe to know that some teachers around me are carrying guns. We should just make guns illegal to prevent the deaths of so many.
Bryan Rivas P.2
2/22/2018 10:43:42 am
I believe that allowing teachers and other school personal to conceal carry can be both a good and terrible idea. This could be good in cases of events such as the school shooting. Also to the fact the personal that are allowed to conceal carry are veterans or highly trained personal. However this idea can be flawed because the teacher could be having a bad day and use the weapon to regain order in the classroom. Also the fact that many veterans suffer from something, whether its PTSD, Anxiety, etc. This serious ailments can cause severe trouble on the school grounds.
Joshua Quintanilla Period 2
2/26/2018 09:13:34 am
I agree with Bryan because giving guns to trained teachers can be a good or bad situation. As Bryan said it can be good if there was a school shooter and they can try to approach the shooter to kill him. Although, it can be bad because someone can get a hold of the gun and the fact that there is a gun on campus can put fear in many.
2/22/2018 10:44:17 am
In my own opinion on this subject, I believe that the idea of giving guns to teachers is in itself a genocide waiting to happen. I do not believe that giving more guns is a solution but the problem as guns are the problem to these mass killings of the innocent. If teachers were given the power to decide ones fate, that would be a shame to the president and any other person who approves of this decision. No one who's job it is to teach a student, should have the power to take that students life away.
2/26/2018 09:12:21 am
I agree, providing more weaponry can cause one disaster to turn into many more.
2/22/2018 10:45:14 am
"Trump Says He Advocates Giving Guns Only to Teachers With Special Training", I believe that teachers should not be aloud to be trained and have fire arms in classrooms for the simple fact that it is making it easier for students to get a hold of them and shoot people.
2/22/2018 10:46:05 am
Trump's "solution" to prevent school shootings has no logic. He believes that the coach at the Florida shooting, who was known to save student's lives, would have been better on shooting at the shooter. Possibly still be alive. However, in this scenario someone still ends up hurt, whereas if guns are completely banned, situations like these are prevented.
Giovanni Barrios P.2
2/22/2018 10:46:10 am
I believe we should have stricter gun laws. When you look at countries in Europe, they have very strict gun laws so they don't have nearly as many shootings. I think if people do want to own a gun it should be very hard to obtain. That way only a few people will own them, and those few people should always have their guns locked somewhere where it is hard for a child to obtain, and their should be an inspector inspecting them daily.
2/26/2018 09:08:18 am
I agree that we should have stricter gun laws
2/22/2018 10:46:17 am
I disagree with Donald Trump's resolution to provide concealed firearms for teachers. I believe that if this were to happen this would cause more conflict. For instance, parents may feel that their child is being placed in a dangerous situation. To add on teachers may have dangerous outbursts,or a student might find the gun one day, or even maybe if it comes up missing then there would have to be a huge lock down and search. Therefore, teachers should be armed with guns.
Justin Stinson, Period 2
2/22/2018 10:46:38 am
Donald Trump is saying that highly trained teachers and/or teachers who are military vets should be armed with firearms to protect the students from school shootings. This has both positive and negative effects to it. How do the students know that they will be able to trust their teachers enough to protect them? How do we know a teacher is even capable of firing a weapon when it all goes down? There is a lot to think about before they just start giving teachers weapons.
Ulices Luna Per 2
2/22/2018 10:46:56 am
I disagree with what president Trump is saying about giving 20% of teachers in campus a "concealed gun" in order to stop a school shooter because of the safety measure's for students like where the weapon is located, what teacher has it, and what if a student got a hold of the gun that was put there to protect them. I think that we should have more safety measures like security.
Angel Roque-Torres P.2
2/22/2018 10:47:06 am
Trumps idea of having teachers with guns has its pros and cons. For example most students will feel unsafe because their teacher has a gun and can easily kill them. Or if a coward with a gun comes in and attempts mass shooting the teachers can shoot him down. I think trump and the government should try to enforce laws on gun control instead of having more guns involved.
Jason Sandoval P.1
2/26/2018 08:54:26 am
I agree with Angel because the idea that Trump has does have its pros and cons. For example, it can be a pro in a situation that a shooter does go to a school the teachers can easily take out the shooter before the shooter takes out anyone else. But it can also be a con in the situation that a teacher gets mad at a student and pulls the gun out on the student out of anger.
2/22/2018 10:47:22 am
As Trump advocates for teachers to get guns he saying that he doesn't want to help control guns. According to NBC News the national rifle association donated $21 million to donald trumps campaign in 2016. As everyone guessed it trump would side with the NRA and defend them. In my own opinion I think there shouldn't be any guns whatsoever. Since 1996 Australia has not had any mass shootings. For more then 20 years there hasn't been any type of shootings that wounded or have killed a lot of people. How have they been able to such thing? With strict gun laws. America needs to understand in order to be better and keep the people of the U.S safe then there needs to be some rules.
Jessica Alejandro Per.2
2/26/2018 09:13:11 am
I agree with Esmeralda for the most part. The US should enforce stricter gun laws to help prevent such incidents. They should provide background checks on individuals who want to purchase a gun to make sure they are mentally able to handle one.
Shayla Jordan Per 2
2/22/2018 10:48:19 am
Arming teachers with guns is not the best alternative for these mass shootings. I believe that there should be no guns at all. All guns do is just make it easier for lunatics who want to harm people. Donald Trump is always wrong and nothing he says makes any sense. Teachers nor students should have access to a weapon.
Huerta, Juan Per 2
2/26/2018 09:12:31 am
A agree with Shayla's claim about teachers not being required to have guns in there position. In other hand i disagree with there not being any guns at all because if another country attacks the United States and there are no guns then how would our country defends themselves.
2/22/2018 10:48:43 am
In my beliefs, giving teachers or any staff members at the school at firearm would be a horrendous action. This would be a dreadful act because that isn't doing anything but putting more ammunition on campus, in which could be even more danger to lives. Furthermore, just like any other case of a mad murder, was behind someone that was either insane, heartless, mental, or just having a bad day could be equivalent to a teacher and/or staff member. All in all, expanding firearm isn't going to creating change it would be threatening to lives and make students feel even more uncomfortable and/or unsafe on campus.
2/22/2018 10:48:50 am
Allowing teachers to carry a weapon with special training seems to be a bad idea to me. The weapon can end up in the wrong hands or could be used intentionally to threaten a student. It will definitely make students feel afraid and could also be used accidentally.
2/26/2018 09:15:46 am
I agree with your statement. We never know what the intentions of a person are, which is why teachers nor coaches should carry dangerous weapons on campus.
Jessica Alejandro Per.2
2/22/2018 10:49:06 am
Arming and training teachers and or coaches with guns would most likely not solve any problems. Many individuals who do these school shootings are not in the right state of mind health wise. Trump explains that arming teachers would create fear for no individual to start shooting in a school but those who are mentally unstable may do it regardless. Even if a teacher were to have possession of a gun, during the time to get to the actual scene of the school shooting the individual who started the shooting can have already killed a number of people. If anything there should be more restriction and laws on gun control and who is allowed to own one.
2/22/2018 10:49:18 am
I think teachers should not be armed at school. Instead schools should get armed security or have police presence on school grounds. This will protect students from any school shootings to occur.
Justin Stinson, Per 2
2/26/2018 09:08:00 am
I agree with Alejandro. Teachers do not need to be armed with weapons to protect students. Instead they should just hire armed security or have a police presence on campus to protect, but not just one. There needs to be multiple of these guards on campus because one person is not going to be able to this job all by himself.
2/26/2018 09:12:15 am
I agree that schools should have more security on their premise, so the students can feel more safe and calm that there will be someone to help them.
2/22/2018 10:50:38 am
I believe that providing teachers with fire arms is very risky. Yes it is a form of protection against school shooters, however it puts more lives a stake. For example, having a fire arm inside an elementary school can be very dangerous. Everyone knows that kids are very nosey and like to snoop around, so just imagine an elementary student, who doesn't know any better, coming across the gun an tries to play with it as if it was a toy. Guns can be very sensitive and will let out a shot if it dropped the wrong way or if the teacher didnt make sure the safety is on. In addition to being dangerous, having guns at school can turn into a big problem due to teachers not being reliable and/or students trying to steal the firearm. Plus, many students at school have at least one or two teachers that the cant stand with a passion and if they come across the weapon they probably will make an attempt in using it on that particular teacher(s).

I have mixed thoughts of allowing teachers to have the right to own a gun in school for protection. To begin, I agree with the idea that schools should allow their teachers to own a gun in school because it is more protection for incidents where there might be a shooter in school. As an individual living in a terrible community where we are exposed to this type of violence, my safety is important especially if I want to exceed my priorities. However, I do not agree with this idea because there are many schools that the government will have to arm. We are not only talking about high schools but middle schools, elementary schools, pre-kinder, and so on as well. It will be difficult to support and train all of the teachers.
2/26/2018 09:13:18 am
I partially disagree with Juvenal on the concept of arming teachers because they will not only be teachers anymore but also soldiers. This would make a school into a battlefield.
2/22/2018 10:50:50 am
The thought of having teachers carry firearms in our school makes me in despicably horrified. Our school is supposed to be a place where we feel safe and calm. I believe that with this action, if it takes course, will no longer be that safe and calm place. Not to mention the serious outcomes of this and different situations that can lead us to be trapped.
Jancarlo Anguiano APUSH
2/22/2018 10:50:50 am
I believe arming teachers with weapons will not do anything to deter potential school shooters and it will inherently make problems worse. What these people such as NRA members and other gun advocates do not understand is that although this would help the students feel more secure while at school, a lot can still go wrong and people will still die. Just because there are armed personnel on campus does not mean that they can just as easily point at the armed personnel and remove them as a threat. Also, raising the legal age at which an an American citizen can purchase a gun will not help either because some parents have guns and their children can just as easily take them to school one day and carry out another mass shooting. I believe the only way this will change is with what the NRA and its over 5 million members are advocating against: stricter gun laws.
Deysi Calderon Per.2
2/26/2018 09:15:57 am
I disagree with you saying that students will feel more secure because I will not feel safe and many others may feel the same way. I honestly don't think that anyone can be trusted with weapons. I agree with you when you said that the armed person on school campus can't easily remove the person as a threat. What if the school shooter kills the armed person on campus? Everything will go wrong. I just think that guns shouldn't be allowed at school or anywhere.
Deysi Calderon Per. 2
2/22/2018 10:51:41 am
I believe that giving trained teachers guns is wrong. As a student, I will feel unsafe even if I know that the teacher is trained. I think that the teacher may shoot up the classroom if he or she is very agitated.You don't know what people are capable of. I honestly think the situation will become worse because students will most likely bring their own gun/weapon to school as well in order to protect themselves from the armed teacher. I also think that if people planning to shoot a school knew about this, it would make them want to do it even more now just because they maybe like the idea of violence and/or wouldn't mind the guns inside the school. I just think it'll cause way more conflict.
Jancarlo Anguiano APUSH
2/26/2018 09:20:39 am
I agree with what Deysi is saying because gun violence is only promoted when you know that there are already weapons in the same space as you are. Also, I do believe that students would feel threatened by the fact that their teacher has a weapon on campus, therefore some would probably feel the need to arm themselves in order to feel safe around their teachers. I believe, just like her, that guns should have no presence at all in schools and that no one, even if trained to do so, should have a gun however, an exception to this would be if there are trained officers on campus like we have here at Locke with the American Guard and LAPD Sheriffs.
Irvin Flores Per 2
2/22/2018 10:52:10 am
What Donald Trump is proposing is absurd. Giving guns to teachers is not going to stop school shootings it’s just going to transform a school into a battlefield. There is no evidence the hostile will just come unprepared because teachers are armed. Our goal is to bring peace into the students’ and parents’ minds, that a school will be a safe place where children can learn. As long as guns exist peace will not exist because a battlefield isn’t a peaceful place for children
2/22/2018 10:54:05 am
I think giving teachers/coaches guns is a bad idea because what if they're the ones that end up shooting or what if someone is planning to do a school shooting finds out which teachers have guns and goes for them first? I don't think giving teachers guns will help the cause.
2/26/2018 09:07:19 am

I am pretty sure that the teachers and coaches will have to sign a contract. Some might say that it is just a paper, but it is a paper that holds a lot of power. A teacher who has a gun will also protect himself. If the shooter goes to the teacher first, the teacher will shoot first for his protection.
2/22/2018 10:55:32 am
In my opinion training teachers so they can have a gun in class is a good and bad idea. Its a good idea because the teachers can protect the students. and its a bad idea because having a weapon means you have power over others. :P
2/22/2018 11:01:12 am
I believe giving guns to teachers and coaches is wrong. For instance, a student will not feel safe knowing that there are multiple harmful weapons on campus. Although some may say that this will protect us when going through a dangerous situation, i disagree. There are many things that can go wrong, for example the teacher/coach that is in possession of the gun can accidentally shoot a student instead of the person who is trying to shoot at them because of the teacher's bad aim. This is just one scenario, there are a lot of things that can go wrong which is why i disagree with Trump's suggestion.
Ashley Cortez Per 2
2/26/2018 09:16:11 am
I agree with your point of view because there is a possibility that guns can get in the wrong persons hand. It will make students feel less safe because they can be used to threat students.
2/22/2018 11:01:48 am
I believe that arming teachers with a gun is a bad idea. Instead of preparing for a school shooting the president should try to prevent people from even trying to commit the crime.He could do this by implementing stricter gun laws so it can be harder to get a weapon.

2/23/2018 10:07:00 am
Instead of teachers why not veterans that have a straight mind to work properly protect the whole school because some don't have jobs or need one and Everybody deserve to be protected by anyone and anything that want to take someone life while they trying to make one
2/23/2018 10:18:06 am
To me this event is starting to be regular. What I said was to give adopt teachers with military or special training experience. They should make it more strict do no kids can get a AR-15.
2/23/2018 10:23:09 am
No i don't like the idea more guns are getting involved. we shouldn't be able to even carry guns or even be able to buy one. yes i get it its to keep us safe but man i just want world peace man
2/23/2018 10:34:55 am
I believe that giving special training to teachers is a bad idea. I Karen Delgado feel that students should all come together and try to stop this proposal that our President is giving. This proposal is a bad idea because that wouldn't make feel safe knowing that my teacher has a gun in class. Also knowing that he or she might not be having a good day may lead to them using the fire gun to treat the students. i say no this shouldn't be allowed.
Felicia Arowolo period 4
2/23/2018 10:42:24 am
In my opinion, i will say that guns should not be given to teachers,because we cant entrust teachers with guns and there is a possibility that teachers can also do something stupid with the gun given to them. for me i think guns should be given to only school securities and there ,should be a lot of security in campus to help keep the parent student safe and happy in school.
2/23/2018 11:53:11 am
i think that guns should be in school somewhere somehow for protection but i dont think teachers should have them i think it should be people o campus as body guards or something with the guns just for school shooting and things like that
2/23/2018 11:56:25 am
i dont think its a good idea to give teachers armed weapons because that just makes school even more unsafe for students even little kids in elementary schools. what if some teachers are right in the head use them for bad themselves or use them to scare students. i dont agree with this idea that Trump has thought of.

I agree with you. I wouldn't feel save knowing a weapon was in the same classroom as I was.
2/23/2018 11:59:33 am
I think giving teachers guns is a bad idea because that can put the students in more danger. If they want safety in schools then they should just put a police officer in schools because they might have more experience. Also, teacher and students can be safe.

I think teachers with guns will strengthen school security. A lot of people are questioning if schools are even safe anymore. A teacher with a gun could protect the campus and the students inside of it. But giving guns to just anyone could be a problem whether they had special training or not . Some students cant handle that type of pressure around them. Guns can also effect the people your trying to protect

I believe this is a bad idea because what if the teachers have the same intentions as a student who wants to shoot up a school. It would be easy for them to get the gun they have and shoot up their entire classroom. If this does happen it could compromise the safety of the students.

i Agree and disagree with the this that trump has thought of.I think that teachers should carry a gun because they can protect us when we cant.Also i think that teachers could do us bad when they seem to be mad.

Why would you want to allow guns into school, it makes no sense to bring a fire arm to school it would only make things more uncomfortable for the students and as well for the teachers. Bringing fire arms to school only brings a false sense of security to the students.

I think that there is no way that anyone would be safe weather it be students or teachers and staff.

i think that it is too risky to have a gun on a school campus, there are too many negative outcomes that can come from this very poor choice and it will increase the chances of someone getting hurt at school more than it already is now.

No it is not a good thing to let teachers carry weapons in schools. Some students might not feel that safe anymore because what if the teacher can't control the gun right after they get the training that they need. If they want schools to be more safe they should have more security or police officers working at the school instead of letting teachers carry weapons.

I think its a bad idea because if students see teachers with a gun,they might want to bring their own.Also if the teacher gets lazy one day and forgets to lock his gun up, a student might reach over and get it.

I completely agree with your statement as it states the most truthful facts of this predicament that we are in.

i dont agree with trump saying teachers should be allowed to have a gun some teacher would forget to put it in somewhere safe or a far reach from them kids. Some student would get currios and would wanna get the gun and start to mess around.

I feel as this is not a good idea. Instead of telling the teachers to carry guns they should increase the security system and have it hard for these people to come into the school. Also what if the children get a hold of the guns and then that a horrible situation right there. I wouldn't be comfortable in the class with a gun in the class.

I believe that giving guns to only teachers with special training is not a good idea. This will most likely make the students feel unsafe. This is also not a way to prevent school shootings. Just anybody is not to be trusted, you cant just put a gun into anyone hands and expect them not to do anything wrong with it. Trumps idea is not a good idea which is why I disagree with it.

I disagree with Trump giving guns to the teachers because teachers may have the same intentions as the shooters and you just never know what could happen.

I believe giving firearms to teachers can be beneficial, but it can also be a bad idea. Some schools cannot afford to purchase weapons for teachers and guns are not meant for everyone to have. Instead of wasting money on firearms, the money should be spent on better securities with some type of protection.

According to Trump 10-40 % of school employees would be qualified to handle a weapon-that means out of every 100 teachers, admin's, etc about 40 of these adults will be able to carry a weapon on school grounds to prevent shootings at schools across America. I for one do not agree on any occasion Trump has because it is a repeat in history. One man can make a colony collapse, another man can make his empire grow. I see a lot of repetition in history books and I wonder when will these presidents who are in their position ever realize that they might be the fall or rise in the society? When will the executive branch of the United States of America ever realize that when they make a very unthoughtful choice that it effects that society for the long run not just in that decade but in that century? This entire century is messed up because of Trump he makes silly, questionable risk and on top of that he brings negativity violence, hostility to the Americans. He might be changing a few things around that are beneficial for the middle and upper classes but for the people who struggle he is making it very unsafe, and it all started with him SAYING that he would really like for teachers to have weapons to prevent such tragedies from happening.

I don't think it should be a good idea because many teachers could switch up on people they could use the gun on them. We should just have a law that doesn't let anyone with a gun on campus and should have a restriction on every guns.
