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?
