Guns in School... a bad idea

Some moronic state legislator in Wisconsin has what he thinks is the solution to the recent slate of school shootings: Arm the teachers, administrators, and custodians:

It might not be politically correct, but it has worked effectively in other countries, Republican Rep. Frank Lasee said Wednesday.

Having taught middle school (grades 6-8) for 16+ years, the last thing I want in a school is and armed teacher, principal, counselor or custodian. talk about tempting fate!!
