Hey there fellow firearm enthusiasts! I'm currently in a masters program for secondary education and one of my professors (who is not a gun fan) has a fair amount of influence with the legislature here in WA state. We have been assigned a fairly open paper regarding controversial school issues and I've chosen the issue of teachers being able to carry at their school. I will be honest this class has definitely gotten the back burner and although I'm tempted to do a quick paper on standardized testing or something of that nature I don't want to let this opportunity pass by. I'm not asking for anyone to write the paper for me since I'm more than capable. However, it would be extremely helpful for you guys to share some of your best articles, statistics, or legislation here so that I can provide the best data possible. (lets be honest there is a ton of BS stuff out there both pro and anti gun) Therefore unbiased and well established sources work best. I will be focused on presenting both sides of the argument for teachers to be able to carry on campus. WA state had a failed bill HB-1788 which I will be discussing as well as similar legislation in Texas, Utah, and South Dakota. I believe the best approach will be to give some statistics on the responsible nature of CCW holders and my personal mindset and experience while carrying. I think the biggest point of influence can be delivered by showing the little training police officers actually receive regarding firearms since public perception is that LEOs are highly trained and that teachers could never be on their level. If you have anything on hand that could be valuable please share it here. I'd be happy to follow this up by posting my paper. Cheers!
