Both Israel and Thailand allow teachers to carry guns to protect their students. Why not here?

[quote:FatalW1shes:MV8yMDgwOTQyXzM1MDQxMjEzXzM1MzlDMzkz] There are an estimated 85+ million gun owners in the U.S. with an estimated 270+ million guns. While it isn't any consolation to the family/friends of murder victims a fraction of 1% of the 270+ million firearms are used in committing murder every year...In 2011 8,583 murders were committed by firearms out of 12,664 murders. Guns might be the weapon of choice but they are not the cause. Trying to punish or blame 85+ million gun owners for the acts of deranged people who murder isn't going to get anyone anywhere. Total Murders by year; 2006-15,087 2007-14,916 2008-14,224 2009-13,752 2010-12,996 2011-12,664 Total Murders by firearms 2006-10,225 2007-10,129 2008-9,528 2009-9,199 2010-8,775 2011-8,583 Number of NICS checks per year 2006-10,000,000 2007-11,000,000 2008-12,000,000 2009-14,000,000 2010-14,560,000 2011-15,142,400 I hate to confuse liberals with facts. I'd be willing to Bet any liberal 1000.00 dollars that the inverse of these facts is real. Less guns = more crime. [/quote]
