Letter: Guns in schools not a good idea

Re: Alaska bill would let teachers pack guns at school.

I am not opposed to people owning guns. However, I am opposed to guns in schools. How about pepper spray, “stun” guns or bear spray? You don’t have to be a good “shot” to get the offender, you just have to “shoot” in the general direction. At least no innocents would be killed. For my protection, I keep a can of bear spray in my bedside table. Do I also have a gun? Who knows!
