Yes, I agree with your Feb. 2 "Our View" editorial, "Train janitors to defend our campuses?" Some common sense at last. Several teachers are in our family, and I don't think arming them with a gun is the solution to keeping our children safe in school.

While I'm at it, I don't agree with allowing the average American citizen to carry "assault weapons." Ask Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood to say "assault weapons" aloud 10 times and then look up the definition of "assault."

I rest my case.
