How many private Christian schools have armed personnel?

Shouldn't they be leading the charge here?

3. Shouldn't they be encouraged to do so?

 

I think some of them around me are going to get a call from a "prospective parent" in order to find out if they are taking the proper measures.

9. I doubt they can afford it.

Most private schools are on a pretty tight budget. I know of a few where the teachers used to literally race each other to the bank to cash their paychecks. Not sure how they are handling payroll with direct deposit nowadays.

4. I went to a Christan elementary school ...and brought gun for show & tell in 3rd grade.

 

That didn't go over too well. It was my dads 150 year old single shot cavalry pistol.

5. If the argument is that schools are shot up due to not having God in them, then no.

7. Did that Amish school have the wrong God?

 

Of course that Sikh temple had the wrong God entirely, but I thought the Amish one is the same one that rode dinosaurs with Jesus.

10. You'd have to ask the people making that argument. I am sure they would come up with some

sort of an excuse, though. They are really great at those sorts of mental gymnastics.

6. I think most urban Jewish community centers, including schools, now do

I would guess that some of the larger places now do, because some of the larger churches apparently have guards.
