Problem 1: No teacher should ever carry a gun (IMO). People are people, anyone can be pushed too far especially in a stressful environment where you're guaranteed to find certain people (students and co-workers) very irritable.

Problem 2: Even beyond that few people could have a positive learning experience knowing that it is likely their teacher is carrying a gun. Scared people don't learn well, fear is not going to be conducive to creating an employable person or a good role model for the next generation.

I can't say much on law aspect since I'm not American but here I think it would classify as an infringement on a teachers "Duty of Care".

As it has been said before I think it would be far more beneficial to employ security guards... actually most of what I said has been said already but I had to give my opinion XD.
