Does the NRA want to arm teachers so that school shooters have easier access to guns? Just incapacitate a teacher, and then voila?

Update:

EDIT: W.T. changed his original comment, without making it clear. People like W.T. are COWARDS.

    No. The NRA doesn't want to arm teachers. Some people in the NRA may want some teachers armed to make it safer for kids. Incapacitating a teacher is another step a killer would have to take and an armed teacher may be much much much much more dangerous for a coward to incapacitate.

    NRA is all about selling guns. They don't care about your kids.

    The idea is you would not know which teacher has the gun. Only a few would be carrying so the odds are if you attack one trying to get the gun you will pick the wrong teacher. Besides, we saw in Florida just how helpful that cop was at coming in and stopping the shooter. At least a teacher inside the school is already facing danger and would be less likely to run and hide like the cop.

    @ Adam Do you have reading comprehension problems or is English not your primary language?

    The word "staff" includes teachers. The word "teachers" does not include "staff".

    In reality, no one seriously suggested arming all teachers - and certainly not the NRA. The suggestion was to arm > some < school staff after they received training, and to focus on arming staff with military, police or security experience. You must not be an American to not know that.

    Note that what is actually happening is schools are either hiring full-time armed security officers or they are being provided with on-duty police officers by the law enforcement agency responsible for their area.

      By the way, it was a cowardly move to edit your original comment, instead of responding in the comment section here.

      So a tiny female math teacher will be able to stop what she's doing and shoot the bad guy, before he knocks her out and steals her weapon? Fat chance!

    Clearly you are an ASSHOLE. The NRA is there to protect the 2nd amendment rights of all United States citizens. Here you are, trying to be funny, when in reality what you are PROPOSING is EXACTLY what should be done and is NOT being endorsed by any group...certainly not the NRA.

    There should be NO gun free zones. Everyone who is a LAW ABIDING CITIZEN should be allowed to carry a FIREARM...esp those who teach and protect our children when they are NOT at HOME. You seem to be under the delusion that there would be someone STUPID enough to walk into a school where EVERYONE in CHARGE of students...to whatever extent, IS PACKING A HEATER in a HOLSTER strapped to their side.

      But an armed citizen shot and killed someone who was attacking a law enforcement officer. A passerby, stopped and told the attacker to stop beating up the deputy or he'd shoot. The attacker didn't listen, so the citizen fired three times. (WINK News, Fort Myers FL, 11142016)

    Because they're stupid, as if an armed teacher is going to stop a suicidal loony with a gun who doesn't care if he gets shot first and can spray bullets as he's on his way down.

    The NRA wants to sell guns. That's the only reason it exists.
