I agree...Like I illuded to in my post...This is a feel good measure that is intended to stave off folks like us who ARE more capable already to handle a situation like this...

But the lawyers, litigious nature of our school system doesn’t alllow for us to be trusted, een though our track record is and will be much better than anyone certified in this bills system...

Now, my wife may do this since she is a teacher, and her classroom is a portable building on one side of the campus...She is a great shooter, but she is physically incapable of transiting the distance to the other side of the school to effectively be a response for that campus...And since the bill doesn’t allow for more teachers to be armed, more than one employee per 400 students...Her schools population is about 550 kids...There is not another person that could be in position because of that requirement in the law...

Seems like this effort was doomed to deter teachers or other staff from actually obtaining this certification to begin with...

It’s the same justification that was used to get CHL passed initially - ‘same training as the police’. Remember that? The only way they were able to pass it over the whingers’ objections was by saying “CHL holders will get the same training as the police do in the use of their pistols.” Same thing applies here. IIRC, the 80 hour requirement is the same as the firearms training that air marshals get.

Also, this doesn’t preclude schools from allowing teachers with CHLs to carry if they want. A school can have both.
