I still have a kid in school and I fully support a trained armed person in my son’s school.
Teachers as a group are probably 95% far left liberal in Washington State. They would never go near a gun even to protect themselves, or their students.
I hope it happens.
I think she is just trolling. The question is, who?
“...would *require* teachers to *voluntarily* go through mental health evaluations and gun training at their own expense before being *allowed*...”
Every school should require at least two teachers and two administrators to carry, and take the necessary courses. Child protection should be a mandatory college course for education majors. Each school should also have a full time police officer assigned to it. The argument is that protecting our schools would require one out of every seven cops to be taken off of other duties, like giving tickets and speeding around. It might require a SWAT officer to miss kicking in the wrong door and invading the wrong house. It seems like a small sacrifice that communities can handle. More gun laws won’t protect our children at schools, but armed guards will. The argument is that simple.
