There has recently been a lot of shooting in schools across America. Lots of people have different ideas how to stop it; one of the ideas was to let teachers carry guns. There is some debate, but I think that if the teacher has enough training they should be able to carry concealed guns. The reason why is if the kids don’t know who has guns and who doesn’t but if they know teachers have guns, then it could reduce the amount of mass shootings at schools. I also think they should keep their guns concealed so that kids aren’t scared about their teacher carrying a gun and so kids don’t see who has a gun. I also think that for teachers to carry guns they need to pass and get the concealed weapon permit and probably some extra training. If teachers could carry guns with those requirements and some actually carried guns, then I think there would be less shootings at schools.
