Article on arming teachers
Interesting article at the Mises Institute. "So there we have it: the government that is supposed to protect people ends up only recommending a gauzy "environment" in which everyone is supposed to feel special and listened to. Instead of protection, we get therapy."
Great article from Mises - however, the article incorrectly cites federal law as prohibiting teachers from arming themselves. Such carry is permissible as long as the teacher has a concealed weapons permit from the state which requires training and background check. The problem is, many shall-issue states ban carry on school grounds even for permit-holders. (It's more difficult to get a permit in CA, but at least we're not that deranged.)
