    My girlfriend (longtime) and myself are librarians and fairly conservative. At faculty functions (different colleges) , we just smile and clench are teeth.

    I carry on and off duty. My Sgt had a point when he said this: " The bad guys don't work 9 to 5, come home and put their guns away. Why should you?" I hear Deputies say they don't want the liability of carrying off duty. Maybe I miss something,isn't the liability the same on or off duty. Also, becoming a cop and not carrying a gun is like going to war without ammo. Keep your powder dry. God bless America. Randy

    We keep a gun close by while we are at home. No kids to worry about so it is no problem.

    You nailed it!!!

When they do encounter a "bad" child, he or she is shuttled off to an "alternative school" or "behavior class". They are then handled by others and are out of their "ideal class" world. I love teachers as a group because they do sacrifice much of their time and emotion to help children. I always felt it was a noble calling, but I was often amazed at the naivette of many of my fellow teachers. They lived in a world that just isn't there. They usually live in a nicer neighborhood than their students and make more money than many of the students' parents. Teachers always seem amazed when their wunderkind (in their minds) students do something vicious and mean. Many students live in a vicious and mean world and don't see any other way to act. t
    Too many teachers carry this Utopian vision into the outer world, where it isn't practical. Some teachers have lived outside of the classroom and are much more practical. Not all teachers are liberals, I had many teacher friends who were Conservative and realistic about life. You might see if you can sort of slide her towards talking to some of these people.

    ...best informed description of my wife's mindset I've read...they live in a wishitwere world, all right...

    I throw one of my Glocks into my back pocket if I am out in my office or in the yard. In the house I do not carry on my person, but of course there are plenty of useful firearms within reach.

    With the way things are these days and people will do extreme things like breaking into others homes. I carry, specially because my 3 year old son is in wheelchair. I am his first and last defense against the crazy people. My daughters are taught to never pickup any of my guns, that they will get to shoot them when they get older. If you have a CCW permit. You should carry when legal, because you may be the difference between life or death.

    I always have the gun on me...this way I know where it is at all times.

    now I wonder if the same people who do not care their piece at home are the same ones who say they carry locked and loaded because there is no time to rack the slide???

    This is pretty sad, because sorry to say, school is one of the most dangerous places in the US. We expect our teachers to do everything, but don't give them the tools to get the job done, or the support they deserve!

    Only too true. I once read a placard that said "If you can read this, thank a teacher" and I'll never forget it for being so profoundly true.

    however one school teacher I had once argued that even if he could he wouldn't want it because he'd some how become just like the negligent parent's that allow kids to get a hold of their guns and take them to school. that, and you never know some crafty ass kid might get around any safety's involved, and we all know not all teachers are very physically capable, wouldn't take much of a freshman to over power most of them.

    its a delicate situation, all I can say is that I'm certainly an advocate of having a trained police officer present in all high schools

    I'm not a mall ninja and am not looking to shoot a bad guy 24/7. I don't carry at home but I always have one readily accessible.

    Little story to tell why I carry at home...problem was I wasn't home!
    Wife was in the bedroom cutting her hair. Dogs are fidgetty and she lets them out, they come back in so she goes back to her hair. They still are fired up about something, so she goes to let them out again, and there's a girl huddled in the corner of the kitchen shaking and trembling and the house alarm is going off. Wife is REALLY freaked out but manages to get police on the phone after several attempts. Girl claims she was assaulted and pushed her way into our home while wife was in another part of the house. Wife doesn't know if assailant is outside waiting or is possibly armed...fortunately neither of these is the case and the police arrive before any more trouble, but it takes them, 25 minutes to get here! Now wife won't use a gun and probably will not even learn to shoot, cause she just doesn't like them, but is very much more interested in me carrying while we're home. Glad it turned out well, cause it sure could have gone other ways..

    I'm glad it turned out well.

    Your wife really should get trained and know hat to do to protect herself.

    I'm sure you've told her so - this should prove it to her.

    We had a discussion about tazers. I just don't think she has a firearm mentality. She definitely understands better, the need for protection. Also, I have beefed up the door in question. I like Rotts, maybe my next dog will be more protection trainable.
