Large school districts never will until the Gov and Legislators amend the carry laws. Anyone who can legally carry outside the school should be able to carry inside the school.

There are other means to take a person out other than a firearm. I’m not one bit against the second amendment or guns. I do know a fair amount of women/ female teachers that would give up there profession as to have to carry or use a firearm.i truly believe there should be 2 -3 people in a school trained to use deadly force.

Perhaps but majority of the shootings involve AR-15 & many times the shooter has multiple clips & rounds well prepared to take out as many & do it quickly. Time engaging & taking out the shooter is super critical to minimize fatalities. I’d think anything outside of a firearm would not be the best option in these situations

That is great. Why anyone would want to be against having these trained individuals within a school is beyond me. The only “means” to take out an active shooter is by shooting back at them. Criminals typically do not expect to be shot at if they think they are in a soft target area. Not “everyone” is expected to be an armed carrier in the schools that choose to go this route. So many people uninformed these days.

I have never heard of any school or district even making the suggestion of firearms carry being mandatory. Any carrying of weapons would be voluntary and in most cases would be part of the school marshal program. I believe in those cases the school marshalls (who are basically peace officers on the school grounds during an emergency) are anonymous.

If they went through the Texas school marshall program, they have two weeks of training dedicated mostly to responding to active shooters. That includes simulated active shooters scenarios sith simunition (paint rounds in 9mm pistols) and live fire training.

Large school districts have police on campus at all times, my particular school has a mini station with usually 4 police around continually…
They also do active shooter training nonstop.

If this would allow teachers to open carry, I'd be willing to sponsor a few of our local teachers for the class. I bet if this were made public, the students' parents would come together to foot the bill for all teachers that wanted to take the class without a dime of federal, local or personal money from the teachers.

I'm sure I'll get some flack for the open carry part, but I personally feel like a shooter isn't even going to try to enter the school if sees every adult packing.

Its mind boggling. I still don’t understand it. Ive seen poor leadership and Ive seen cowardice and dereliction of duty but nothing like that. Not one even stood up to the chief let alone took matters into their own hands.

Texas school districts, including Uvalde ISD before the shooting there, were already considering sending volunteer teachers through the FASTER program in Ohio. It is funded by donations and is no cost to the school districts other than travel and lodging for any school faculty that attends the 3 day course. So far, I know they train in obviously Ohio but also in Arizona. It was featured on Shooting USA on the Outdoor Network
