The tragic shooting in Newtown, Connecticut last year sparked a heated, nation-wide debate surrounding gun control. Many on the left vehemently demand more gun control while many on the right demand less of it.

In the aftermath of the devastating shooting, some schools have decided to take action.

Clarksville High, a public school in Arkansas, concluded that the best way to keep its staff and students safe is to arm teachers with 9mm handguns.

9mm Gun

It is one of the only public schools to arm its teachers as a result of the Newtown massacre.

Although Clarksville has a relatively low crime rate, Superintendent David Hopkins got countless calls from concerned parents after the Sandy Hook incident. Most of them said they would feel safer if the students’ teachers were armed. Hopkins think teachers should be able to protect their students — even if it comes to using a gun.

Hopkins said, “We’re not tying our money up in a guard 24/7 that we won’t have to have unless something happens. We’ve got these people who are already hired and using them in other areas. Hopefully we’ll never have to use them as a security guard.”

Each armed teacher will be given a stipend to purchase their firearm. They will then receive training through the Nighthawk Custom Training Academy.

Not surprisingly, the school’s decision has been met with a great amount of opposition. Tom Kimbrell, the Arkansas Education Commissioner, said possessing a hand gun is too much responsibility for a teacher.

Nonsense.

Teachers should be able to defend their students through any means necessary.

Simply pronouncing a school a “gun free zone” does not work. This only leaves teachers with few ways to defend students against armed criminals, who do not follow laws to begin with.

Do you think arming teachers is an effective way to keep our students safe? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
