    Default South Dakota: Armed Teachers

    Teachers are now allowed to guns into the classroom in South Dakota.
    The state gov yesterday signed a law allowing state school boards to supervise the arming of school employees or security personnel.
    Does anyone else think that this is beyond belief and that sends a very bad sign to the rest of the world about the attitude that certain sections of American society have towards weapons. (Not that we already know this)

    Sorry, but there is something seriously sick about a society which goes in this direction.

    How long before an armed teacher shoots up a classroom full of kids?

    Saw something about the Kentucky state government passing a bill that basically makes any new Federal laws on gun control null and void....

    Armed guards make sense in a society with 300 million guns but in the sometimes confrontational atmosphere of the classroom armed teachers may not be a wise decision. I think the gun manufacturers are driving American gun-policy. in Congress and the states - especially in the GOP but also among redstate Democrats. I think Israel has armed guards in their schools and consequently there are no massacres there in recent history.

    Teachers in Limerick and West Dublin might be next.....

    Ireland also has a violence problem.
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    Isn't there an irony here? The state is going to "supervise the arming" of teachers in order to protect kids from any old nut who can buy a weapon with (presumably) far less "supervision" of their arming. Why not just "supervise the arming" of everyone?

    Will be interesting to see when the first supervised teacher kills a student.
