It would be so kick ass if teachers were allowed to carry tazers. I can just see all the lawsuits though. Damn
When the company I worked for went out of business, one of my buddies decided to go back to teaching. He didn't last a week. One of the high school punks was doing something he wasn't supposed to in the hallway, and
my buddy told him to knock it of. The kid mouthed off and threatened to kick his ass- whereupon my buddy dropped him for the count of 313.
My buddy just walked to the principals office and turned in his keys.
Strangely enough - he didn't get sued.
There was actually a congressman in one of the north-midwest states, I forget which one, who had proposed legislation to allow teachers to carry handguns--for the purpose of defending the students against an armed intruder.
Now, I take a look around my school and I'll tell you, there's about 2 or 3 teachers who would totally take advantage of the situation and suddenly we'd have no kids left. I would have the self control, but I see some of the kids and I know they wouldn't last 2 seconds when they mouth off to a dean or another teacher because they're just little shit disturbers and everyone knows it.
