Don’t worry about the students legally carrying pistols in the classroom. Crime rate among carry permit holders is practically nonexistent. The last thing I want to do when I conceal carry is to have to shoot someone. Everyone I’ve met that carries is very levelheaded. Concealed carry holders actually make the place safer, if there is ever a mass shooting, which is statistically extremely rare, despite all the sensationalism, it will help immensely.
As far as “weapons of war” goes, automatic firearms are extremely expensive and hard to get, and practically useless without a large amount of training. I didn’t even use one in Iraq, left my rifle on semi. Only our machinegunners used it, and that was bursts of fire, not full auto. Full auto is hard to control, wastes ammo, and expends that ammo insanely fast.
There are a large amount of gun laws in this country, and they are pretty effective. Crime is a lot lower than it was 30 or 40 years ago. The cities with the strictest gun control laws have the highest crime. Shitcago, Baltimore, New Orleans, ect. Most of the gun deaths in the US every year are gang members killing each other, if you take that out of the equation, the US gun crime is on par with most of the other countries in the world.
Educate yourself, rather than spewing false liberal rhetoric.
