Trump Suggests Teachers Should Be Armed on School Grounds
At this point the hard right will do anything to protect the money they get from NRA groups — children’s lives be damned, but sure enough when you nominate one of the dumbest, weirdest presidents (maybe in human history) you get insane solutions such as these. So, what is our big stupid president’s solution to massacres such as the one in Parkland, Florida? Why, arm the teachers, of course! President Trump said—
It only works when you have people very adept at using firearms, of which you have many. It would be teachers and coaches.
Understandably, people are HORRIFIED at the idea of arming teachers. What do you think is going to happen? Are you expecting teachers to be able to kill people? Are you going to expect kids to feel safe if some of the already undependable people who sometimes get these kinds of jobs have the authority to shoot them? Just look at the problems with racist cops murdering people of color. Do we really want to arm more people around children? Wouldn’t losing your precious guns to not have children die be a safer choice than demanding these places become war zones? Or, is it about giving more money to gun manufacturers?
Here is what people on Twitter had to say on the issue.
Also the president had a weird card telling him how to feel so… there’s that too.
So what do you think? Exactly how bad is the idea of arming teachers? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending.
