"September 29 in Cazenovia Wisconsin, a 9th grader with a shot gun and a .22 revolver entered his highschool and shot the principal 3 times.
The student had recently been disciplined for having tobacco in school.
He has now been charged with murder."
Here in the States school shootings has been on a disturbing rise lately.
In my state of Wisconsin, Lawmakers Propose allowing school employees to carry concealed guns.
I think in some minds having school employees carrying weapons will make possible shooters think twice. Though it may make students feel safer, if a disgruntled student or a person with a death wish wants to shoot up a school then he will do it regardless.
Ofcourse shot to kill would be the last resort on the teachers part.
The Highschool in Cazenovia had code alarms going off so the teachers and students knew someone had a gun. I think its better than being a sitting duck.
For highschools do you think it will help keep students safer knowing that teachers will be packing? Or do you think its a bit over reacting?
Would you want this for your highschool?
