What do you guys think about this? Sign of the times or over reacting? Never thought I would see this in California.

The policy allows for the school district's superintendent to designate no more than five district employees whom may carry a concealed firearm and ammunition at any given time. According to a board agenda, employees who wish to carry a weapon must fill out an application, and meet the following criteria:

  1. The employee must be a lawful holder of a valid and current Carrying Concealed Weapons (CCW) issued by any California sheriff
  2. This CCW must have no restrictions imposed by the issuing authority relative to possession on school grounds or public property
  3. The employee must have completed a training designated by the superintendent
  4. The employee must have completed any training program required by the Districts workers' compensation, liability or other insurance carrier, as those training requirements my change from time to time
  5. The employee must have submitted a completed and signed Firearms Possession Application and Firearms Use Agreement

District documents also indicate the superintendent will take things like the employee's conduct, discipline record and evaluations into account when considering him or her for approval of carrying a gun on campus.

I never thought I would see it either, especially in CA. My opinion is its a good thing. If nut job shooters target schools because there is no chance of armed resistance (which has literally been proven through journals and such from past cases), simply create the possibility of armed resistance. Not a hard thing to conceptualize.

The problem is that many people have been so indoctrinated to fear guns that they resist this idea from the word go. I've literally had a conversation with another school system worker about this and her words were "well I'm glad you don't work in my district. I'm absolutely terrified of one of my students bringing in a gun to school." So if this terrifies you, you would prefer to simply be a victim in this situation, and you wouldn't even want the option to carry the proper means to defend yourself. Gotcha.

Any opposition to common sense solutions like this are usually (not always) pretty irrational.

Yeah pretty much. I've been hearing a lot of stuff that doesn't make any sense, particularly from younger people recently.

I have a friend in his 40's that dates 20 year olds, I asked him one day what the heck they have in common and talk about 

He responded, talk?
