Sorry. I did not mean to put you on the spot, but I think the point had to be made. The assumption that carrying a weapon makes you a target is a fallacy that has been perpetuated in Hollyweird and the news mafia for so long it has become a thinking error even among self-defense advocates.
When schools have police officers in the schools for security, are the police officers targeted? Are police officers at malls or out in the community targeted? They are not and neither are individuals who open carry. Criminals avoid them because they don't want to get shot. Armed citizens are only targets of the communists in the democrat party and the fascists in the republican party.
Arming faculty would be a deterrent to a Virginia Tech. style attack and demonstrate that civilians carrying weapons on college campuses makes it safer and does not cause anarchy, which can serve as a documented argument for campus carry for all CHL holders.
We can argue all we want about how allowing anyone with a CHL on college campuses is best, but the current legislators will not pass such a bill. I offered this as an alternative because I think they may consider it, and it could lead to allowing all CHL holders on campuses.
I think the point that was being made is IF someone was determined to shoot up a school, and IF they knew only teachers was armed, then the logic that the Teacher will be a target 1st before students is valid.
If a shooter knows someone is armed they're not going to ignore them and shoot everyone else while the person who is armed pulls their weapon and kills them.. that makes no sense at all.
When people say "target" what they mean is that they are a higher priority then the unarmed.
It does not mean that any one carrying a gun at any time is a target as in they are the catalyst for a shooting, we can all agree that is ignorant.
Put your self in the shooters shoes, are you going to burst into a class room, ignore the teacher who you KNOW is armed? they're crazy not stupid.
To take your line of reasoning above when people rob banks take over style do they ignore the security guard?
