Bring your teacher an apple and some bullets?

In response to the school shooting in Newtown, Conn., more than two dozen Missouri Republicans are co-sponsoring a bill that would allow teachers and administrators to carry guns into public schools if they have a concealed-weapon permit.

"They are the people that we already entrust to educate and protect our children, but we don't give them all the tools they need," said state Rep. Mike Kelley, R-Lamar. "This is going to give them one of the tools they've been missing."
