Should Colorado Teachers Carry Guns in Schools? [POLL]

The President may be calling for tighter gun control, but Colorado lawmakers are taking a different approach to keeping its citizens safe; and it involves letting teachers carry concealed firearms in schools.

Senate Bill 13-009 aims to allow teachers to level the playing field when dealing with violent criminals in schools, according to the Coloradoan.

The Republican-backed bill would authorize public school district boards to decide whether to allow employees to carry concealed handguns on school grounds, if they hold a valid concealed carry permit.

Currently, the Gun-Free School Zone Act of 1990 says that only sworn peace officers and security guards can carry guns on school grounds, so the passing of 13-009 would definitely be a  big change.

I definitely feel like we need to do everything we can to keep children safe; but I also feel like putting children that close to guns every day of the week is just asking for trouble.  I don’t know, what do you think?
