In terms of how it actually is, that depends on where you are. Some places allow it, some do not. For instance, in Minnesota you can carry in a school if you have a written authorization from the school's principal in addition to your carry permit.

In terms of whether it should be allowed, there is no logical reason to forbid it. If a person is deemed to be capable of carrying a gun in public at all, it really does not matter whether he is in a school, church, shopping mall, or just walking down the street.

No. We are there to teach and to be models of how to solve problems without violence. To have a gun is totally against all things teaching stands for.

No one answer, as there is no one teacher, no one school. My opinion is that school staff, properly trained, should be permitted to carry a firearm for the purpose of protecting the children from violence.

Should teachers use guns in school?

Unless they're teaching a course in firearms, no. I would add that, if the environment is so deadly as to require teachers to carry firearms, learning is already deeply impaired. Correct the environment instead.

Are teachers with guns in an elementary school good?

No, teachers in an elementary school with guns are not good. The are not supposed to carry guns in most schools. The security guard or police officer may have a gun in school, but not school teachers! In addition, dividing people up into good guys or bad guys is an erroneous classification. In a recent study of schoolteachers with guns, 30 teachers discharged their weapons, most of which were intentional and illicit. (Please see the related link below for more information.)
