Opposition to allowing properly trained and credentialed school staff to carry concealed weapons on school property is either the result of an unreasonable fear of guns or a lack of confidence in the school staff.

Don’t school staff have to go thru background checks and psych profiling? Training for safe and effective gun handling is not hard, hardly anyone washes out of the military because they can’t get it. Nobody is asking that it be mandatory for school staff to get trained and be armed. We are only asking to let them if they choose too.

Just passing the law could make schools safer even if few school staff came to work armed. There could be a deterrent effect on potential school shooters as schools would not look so much like a soft target.

Gun free zones means the good guys are unarmed and the bad guys know it and can shoot without fear of returned fire.
