Gun advocates say that allowing principals and teachers to carry guns can prevent tragedies like Sandy Hook.
In Wichita Falls, Texas teachers are allowed to carry guns. Students at the school say that they feel safer because their teachers are armed. School superintendent, David Thweatt, told ABC news that he is convinced that arming teachers and principals will prevent tragedies like Sandy Hook.
In a school in Tulsa, Oklahoma have armed guards patrolling the hallways.
Lawmakers like Governor Rick Perry from Texas and Representative Louie Gohmert are pushing for more guns. They argue that people should be allowed to carry guns wherever they want. Rep. Gohmert claims that if the principal at Sandy Hook Elementary School had an M-4 rifle in her office she would have been able to stop Adam Lanza.
Gun advocates point to an incident in 1997 where an armed principal stopped a 16-year-old gunman who already shot two students in a Pearl, Mississippi high school.
However, a Chicago school district focuses more on high tech security. A teacher from Middleton Middle School in Chicago said that training teachers to be sharp shooters is unrealistic. She told ABC news that she would rather have guns out of school.
Bill Bond who was a former principal in a Heath high school where a gunman killed three students in 1996 says more guns will create more problems.
What do you think of this proposed solution? Will arming school teachers and principals make schools safer?

KE$HA apologized for her Die Young lyrics in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting.
The singer’s latest single was at No 3 in the Billboard singles charts, but was pulled from US radio stations after Friday’s tragedy.
The 25-year-old singer said she understands why her song is inappropriate.
In a tweet which has now been deleted, she wrote: “I understand. I had my very own issue with ‘die young’ for this reason. I did NOT want to sing those lyrics and I was FORCED TO.”
She also expressed her sympathy for the 26 victims of the shooting. She encouraged fans to donate to a charity fund for Sandy Hook victims.
She wrote: “Its beyond words what has happened. Help families affected by the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary by donating here: indiegogo.com/OneRepublicForSandyHook.”

Valeria Levitin is called the thinnest woman in the world.
Valeria suffers from eating disorders and urges young girls to not follow in her footsteps.
“All the letters I’ve had are from women, mainly in their twenties, who see me as some kind of inspiration.
“This is why I want to campaign against anorexia. I am not going to teach them how to die. It is not a game, it is not a joke, it is your life.”
Valeria developed her eating disorder in her teens. She wants to speak out about how the illness has ruined her life. She wants to tell girls and women that she desperately wants to win this battle in order to have a family.
“I want young people to live happy, healthy and meaningful lives. Anorexia has made me lonely, unattractive and repulsive for the people around me.”
Her daily diet only include fruit, a small amount of meat and vegetables. She can no longer eat many types of food because her body will reject them.
Valeria admits that she has not been in a relationship for 10 years because her illness makes her miserable.
She said it was difficult to be with someone when you are always in a bad mood.
Her nutritional intake can only be done by taking supplements. It is also to help counter the risk of bruising.
And because of her fragile state, she tries to avoid situations where she could fall or cause injury to herself.
Valeria wants to move back to Moscow to see if she can get any better.
The disturbing part of this is the many letters she receives from her “fans.”
Read one of her fan letters:
Hello dear Valeria,
I am 23 and weigh 8½st and I do not like myself this way. I want to look skinny like Thumbelina. Nobody can persuade me not to diet, even though I acquired gastritis and pancreatitis.
I have tried all kinds of diets but they all yielded only temporary results. On my present diet I do not feel hungry eating 10½oz to 14oz of food per day, I cannot return to my old way of eating because I fear I will gain weight.
All my relatives are telling me it will hurt me, that I will be a victim of anorexia. I am a little worried that one day I will be faced with a problem of critically low weight and I want to know when to get worried. When did it happen to you?
What do you think of this story? What is causing women to want to be skinny?
