Besides I teach science and I have gallons of hydrochloric acid in my classroom. My kids know that in the event of an active shooter, we lock the doors and fill beakers with acid. If the door opens, the person who opens it will get a beaker full of HCL in their face
If you are a science teacher and are keeping "gallons of HCl" in your classroom, I would say you are being pretty reckless. You do know that HCl is a fuming acid, right? Pouring a beakerful of 12M HCl outside a fume hood is likely to be harmful to you and the kids. Think about this.

I teach chemistry exclusively, and there is nothing in my chemical storeroom that would be a substitute for a firearm.

I carry every single day in my classroom
Edit: How common is classroom carry in Utah?
