Va. Bill Would Order Schools to Arm Teachers

Del. Robert G. Marshall is proposing a bill that would require some teachers or other school staff to carry concealed weapons in schools.

Marshall (R-Prince William) requested that the bill be drafted in response to the mass shooting last week at a Connecticut elementary school.

Gov. Robert F. McDonnell (R) said this week that there should be a discussion about whether school staff should be allowed to carry concealed weapons to protect children against intruders.

Marshall’s proposal goes beyond the governor’s comments, which were made in the course of a radio interview Tuesday. Marshall would not only allow staff with concealed handgun permits to carry them in schools, but require school districts to designate some staff members to do so. Those employees would have to be certified in gun safety and competence, Marshall said.

Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling (R) said through a staff member Wednesday that he does not favor requiring school employees to be armed.

    Finally some return to Sanity. My father was a school principle. He ‘carried concealed’ as well as many teachers. No problems on any scale, as we see today, with a defenseless ‘victimology’ destiny, perpetrated by the dis utopian segment of society that has no knowledge of history and it’s predictable consequences.

    Certified Israeli students (IDF) as well as teachers ‘Carry’. Before Israeli citizens were forced by a culture of hatred, to come to their senses, they were disarmed victims, slaughtered like helpless lambs on a daily basis. Today the ‘Sheepdogs’ are always present with instantaneous response. It works..!

      The young people of today are educated to fear guns, the Constitution, Religious Liberty, and lack of Abortions on Demand. This is all they care about. This is the dismantling of America as we once knew it.

    I think it’s a great idea and it might allow the firing of the unionized teachers so they can bring in some real educators.

    Guess we better move to Virginia….if USA stops us from owning a gun to defend ourselves, we should secede from the Union, otherwise we’ll be game for criminals invading our homes, schools, etc. Look at Mexico! Why do you think we have so many illegal immigrants. Because they’re running from the Drug Lords who are the only ones owning guns, while the citizens are unarmed and unable to defend themselves against them because of gun control laws. Then the USA gives the Drug Lords more guns, and helps kill more innocent citizens. Give them back their guns and the criminals will be gone.
