Montana Gun Leader: Arm Teachers

Gary Marbut, president of the Montana Shooting Sports Association, has attracted much attention by recommending that the country allow willing teachers to bare arms in school. Here's a part of his inteview with the Missoulian of Missoula, Mont.:

As for arming teachers – and Marbut stressed that should be on a volunteer basis only – “if we believe that the potential for crazy people to shoot up schools is a genuine risk we need to address, then the rational way to do that … is to allow, through public policy, teachers who are willing to undertake the responsibility” to carry. Full story here.

Question: Would you support arming teachers, on a voluntary basis, as a means to stop a possible shooter at your children's school?
