teachers already have enough trouble not killing their students sometimes. need we make the temptation greater?

More guns = more scared people = less violence/crimes

Pretty easy equation.

I'd rather have the criminals afraid that I might have a gun. Then the criminal knowing for sure that I don't have a gun.
until the act is committed the person is only a potential criminal. everyone is a potential criminal. you want everyone afraid you have a gun.

No, not everyone is a potential criminal. Even after Katrina in N.O. did everyone turn to crime. While Basic human nature hasn't changed in 5000+ years. There will always be those that try to do the right thing. Just as there will always be the career criminal.

If you have a Conceal Carry Permit and are carrying the the weapon right then the average Joe Six Pack on the street will never notice. With a criminal it might enough of a deterrence that he/she will move on to an easier target.

I can't tell if you are gun stupid, gun phobic, or both.

everyone is a potential criminal. all they have to do to cross the line is commit a crime. you'd just like to keep everyone slightly on edge wondering if the person next to them is packing or not. wondering if the guy waiting in line at the supermarket or teaching your kid has had a particularly bad weekend and is about to lose their shit, pull out their lawfully obtained firearm and go off.

people go crazy. people make stupid decisions. it happens.

Actually there hasn't been a single instance where a person with a CCW went crazy and shot someone. Not one.
