Oregon Teacher Wants to Take Deadly Concealed Handgun to School For Fear of Her Ex-Husband

An AP story from southern Oregon, in Medford, noted a disturbing push by a female teacher who wants to carry a deadly concealed handgun in her school to protect herself from her ex-husband who she claims is threatening her:

High school English teacher Shirley Katz insists she needs to take her pistol with her to work because she fears her ex-husband could show up and try to harm her. She's also worried about a Columbine-style attack.

We have a lot of things to say about this.

First, the mistaken notion that a concealed handgun is a viable means of protection has been completely discredited. But that is not why Gun Guys is up in arms.

Since when does a teacher get to unilaterally decide -- over state law, a community's wishes, and a school board -- to put an entire classroom of other people's children at risk because that teacher thinks his or her own safety is more important? Katz's demands represent the height of selfishness.

If Shirley Katz truly believes that her ex-husband is so violent that he might come into her school and shoot up the place and murder her, then she should request a temporary administrative leave or police protection at school. For Shirley Katz not to do so -- if she feels so threatened by her ex-husband -- is putting her students' lives at risk by inviting a potential tragedy on school grounds.

By bringing a gun to school also puts Ms. Katz's students at risk if it were to fall out of her holster or get left somewhere in the school for another student to find.

Yeah, them concealed handguns sure are deadly.

Hell, mine jumped right out of the holster and started heading in the direction of a local preschool just the other day.

If only the manufacturers didn't introduce them to the taste of human blood so early...

Yes, I'm sure the cops would drop everything and put a guard on her 24/7 if she but asked!

I mean, really. How selfish of her! Not wanting to die?

And how can we possibly trust her with a pistol?!

She only spends all day babysitting 20+ kids in a small room, all by herself for an hour at a time, 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. Its not like she's EVER done ANYTHING to prove she can handle the responsibility of being armed in public. How foolish of her!



This is like companies who ban airline pilots from carrying concealed. As if the giant friggen airplane wasn't a weapon of several greater magnitudes all by itself.

If we had universal healthcare all these problems would correct themselves.

those guys are so out-to-lunch it's almost unbelievable.

question: why is it that liberals always lambaste gun owners for being "...a minority group forcing their will on the majority.", yet in every other instance of minority groups fighting for their rights (gays, "minorities", etc.), they fall all over themselves proclaiming how we need to be supportive, how we need to accept their views, and how brave they are?

Heck, if my handguns weren't deadly I wouldn't carry them. What would be the point?
