You like that name? I just came up with that.
There is a petition on Whitehouse.gov urging the president to present stronger control legislation to congress, not that he needs any encouragement. As we all know, that is not going to stop killers from killing, and in the end will only make it worse. This petition already has over 98,000 votes, because people are idiots.
There is another petition, calling for Congress to enact legislation allowing teachers to CC. Here is the link, Whitehouse.gov arm teacher

I suppose the legislation would look something like this:
1) Faculty who are directly responsible for the safety and well-being of one or more students shall be authorized to carry a firearm. This should include teachers, security guards, and senior administration(principal, VP). Inclusion of ancillary staff such as bus drivers, janitors, food prep staff, and librarians should be decided by the state or school board.
2) While states and schools may decide the form of carry, preventing teachers from carrying a firearm will be illegal without due cause(ineligibility to possess a firearm, irrational or mentally unstable behavior, disciplinary action).
3)Educators who wish to carry a firearm on school grounds must complete a course, with state-defined curriculum that provides adequate training for the defense of the school against live shooters, while instructing carriers on the proper ways to carry so as to not allow access of the firearm to students. A refresher course should be required annually or every other year.
4)If unwilling to comply with the federal regulation, a state legislature must provide law enforcement officers at each school who must be allowed to carry their duty weapons.
That's my $.02, anyway. Feel free to comment on any changes.
