Arm teachers to protect kids from terrorists

Dave Kopel, in a very well researched article, argues for arming teachers so that incidents, such as that happened in Beslan, Russia do not happen again elsewhere.

After teachers and workers in schools were armed in Israel and Thailand, attacks on schools either ceased or decreased significantly. Apart from helping to counter terrorists who attack kids in school, firearm ownership will act as a preventive measure against terrorism. Terrorists will avoid schools because of the knowledge that adults there will be armed.

Govt. cannot be everywhere and protect us everytime. Removing constrains on firearm ownership in general will go a long way in eradicating terrorism.
