    Hey good idea, give guns to the likes of Coach Wolf and McGowan. Sounds to me like they already have problems with them keeping their "guns" under control. The teachers in Martinsville are morons to start with. Now they will be morons with guns. How about giving everybody bullet proof vests with a paid book fee?
