If I were on a plane and saw the flight attendants putting on parachutes 
I wouldn't be happy. That's what it's going to be like for kids when 
their teachers start packing heat.

Reminds me of the "duck and cover" era when I sat there watching the 
window for the flash.

OTOH, there's a possibility to make school more fun: Dress up the place 
like a western saloon. Teach the boys to play poker; make the 
cheerleaders into dancing girls.
