Is it any wonder I want out of here? Actually, my original plan was only to leave Las Vegas, but this whole state is crazy! Just read this:
Lawmaker Says Teachers Should Have Guns In Class
12-14-2006 7:31 AM
(Carson City, NV) — If state Senator Bob Beers has his way, every Nevada teacher will be able to keep a gun in the classroom. Beers says he’s working on a bill that would allow instructors and other school personnel to arm themselves during classes, once they complete a course on gun safety. The Las Vegas Republican believes students would think twice about bringing a gun to campus if they knew the teachers were armed as well. Not everyone is supporting Beers’ idea. Clark County School Superintendent Walt Rulffes tells the “Review-Journal” an armed staff would actually make schools less safe. He says more studies are needed before he would endorse the idea of teachers carrying guns to class.
