Guns for teachers are a bad idea

I understand the need to make classrooms safe, but I think the decision in Ohio to allow teachers to carry guns is wrongheaded (“Ohio Makes It Easier for Teachers to Carry Guns to School,” The New York Times, Jun. 14). By reducing the number of hours of training required from 700 to 24, Ohio is setting itself up for a disaster. I say that because teachers have their hands full already trying to teach their subject matter.  Expecting them to use their guns is unrealistic.
