Should schools arm teachers?

There is renewed conversation about whether schools should arm teachers and administrators or let them carry concealed weapons. A school shooting in New Mexico last week  in which two students were injured was the 30th since the Newtown massacre on Dec. 14, 2012 -- and then came more shootings, at Widener University in Pennsylvania and at Purdue, among other schools. Quinnipiac has announced it will use armed security. Are schools protected enough? Are armed school employees the answer? What’s your view?
