South Dakota Allows Armed Teachers.

Written by Gary North on July 10, 2013

The state of South Dakota has passed a law that allows public school teachers to wear a side arm.

The teacher must get permission from the district. Then she must get “rigorous” training. Then she must put up with the stares of her fellow teachers in the faculty lounge.

Basically, she must reverse the outlook of the professors who screened her, the district that hired her, and her colleagues, who would vote for gun control if they could.

Will public school teachers be packing iron anytime soon? Not even in Texas.

But what about “protect the children”? Sorry. That means “more government controls, more taxes, and collective bargaining for teachers.”

Just because a state government legalizes guns for teachers does not mean the culture of liberalism that has controlled teachers’ certification for 80 years is going to change.

When 80% of the teachers on a tax-funded campus are packing iron, we will know that there has been fundamental change in American education.

Until then, teach your child at home. “No more Columbines!” Good idea. “No more Newtowns!” I’m for that.

    There are rural school districts where teachers have been concealed-carrying for 20 years. Open carry? No. But ours are armed.

  2. The blog said, "The state of South Dakota has passed a law that allows public school teachers to wear a side arm".

    You don't pass a law "allowing" something. They have the right already. It's called the 2nd Amendment. The idea that a free human being needs the government to "pass a law" allowing the free exercise of a God-given right proves that we do not live in a free society. Get the picture?

  3. I manage a local gun store in Central Texas and i personally know several schools in the area that are “allowing” certain personel to carry. The district does not allow this at a Gun Free Zones, but certain staff are willing to put both their life’s and careers on the line in the event the unthinkable happens. The staff that will carry are required to have training and required to practice frequently. In all these school and other shootings all that would have been needed was one person and one bullet to stop the threat.
