you didn't make much sense with this post. if the teachers already have their carry permits,they don't need other permits,and there's no cost. All they need is for the schools to ALLOW them to carry on school grounds. State law may have to be changed to allow that. Little or no special training is needed,because the rules for defense in a school are not going to be any different than defense in any other public place. Armed school employees would have to keep their gun ON their person,no sticking it in a desk drawer where someone else could gain access to it or the employee caught away from their gun in an attack. Since it's CONCEALED carry,the kids would never know if there was a gun. Brandishing is already illegal.

Agreed. I really don't like having to leave my gun in my car when I am going into a classroom to teach. Michigan law prohibits concealed carry in college classrooms and dormitories. Elsewhere on campus, okay.

I would be happy to get more training, but as Jay Wye says, little if any more is really needed.

Yesterday a school shooting was quickly stopped before it escalated further thanks to an armed guard being on campus.

A student opened fire at his middle school Thursday afternoon, wounding a 14-year-old in the neck before an armed officer working at the school was able to get the gun away, police said.

Multiple shots were fired in the courtyard of Price Middle School just south of downtown around 1:50 p.m. and the one boy was hit, Atlanta Police Chief George Turner said. In the aftermath, a teacher received minor cuts, he said.
