CHRIS WALLACE (HOST): One is a state issue, also the idea of the teachers. Even [Florida] Governor [Rick] Scott's against that. 

KIMBERLY STRASSEL: Well look, I mean too I think you have to put it in the right framework. If you're talking about forcing or requiring teachers to do something like [that] that's not going to fly. But look we know that probably the most law-abiding part of the public are people who have concealed carry permits. They've had to go through a lot of background checks. They've had to go through training. There's surely some teachers out there, well quite a few probably, who have concealed carry permits. If they want to be more protected in the classroom, should we tell them no? I think that's a debate that needs to happen out thereOther ways just for teachers to protect -- maybe give them a flash bang or something so that when someone runs in they have some opportunity to help protect their kids. But those are the debates we need to be having.
