Seems like in today’s classrooms, teachers are behind the eight ball because they can’t get a lesson out to the students who want to learn because of kids who act out. In addition, schools are gun free safety zones making it almost the perfect smorgasbord for literally any off-the-wall crazy liberal to steal their parent’s firearm and walk up to the school and do damage.
I agree with presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump that teachers should be armed and properly trained in classrooms. Maybe not all but a few just in case something happens; you need a deterrent. This would cut down on a lot of violence towards teachers and students that can’t defend themselves.
There are teachers that are responsible gun owners who can’t even feel safe in their car because of gun-free zone. I don’t see the problem with these teachers being authorized to care a gun on school grounds.
Donald Trump on Sunday said some teachers in the U.S. should be armed with guns inside their classrooms.
The presumptive Republican nominee, who was recently endorsed by the National Rifle Association of America, made the comments during a Fox & Friends interview in which he was asked to respond to Hillary Clinton’s remarks about his stance on gun control.
“I don’t want to have guns in classrooms, although in some cases teachers should have guns in classrooms, frankly,” Trump said. “Because . . . things that are going on in our schools are unbelievable.”
“I’m not advocating guns in classrooms,” Trump added. “But remember in some cases . . . trained teachers should be able to have guns in classrooms.”
Clinton on Saturday attacked Trump in Florida during an appearance at the Trayvon Martin Foundation’s Circle of Mothers event, which is held for mothers who have lost a child to gun violence, according to the Miami Herald.
“He’d mandate that every school in America allow guns in classrooms,” Clinton told the crowd. “That’s no way to keep us safe. If you want to imagine what Trump’s America will look like, picture more kids at risk of violence and bigotry. Picture more anger and fear.”
I mentioned this on Twitter on Sunday and I was approached with the question if there was a history of students beating up teachers:
Well we do need guns carried by school staff members, there’s no denying that! Luckily, Utah is paving the way with armed teachers and soon other states will follow suit and we’ll cut the number of school shootings to near zero. By the way, criminals don’t read signs, so you can put up as many gun free zones signs as you want. Lunatics will still enter schools with guns and kill kids just to bring up this topic again and again. A sign will not stop anyone.
Do you think teachers should have guns in schools as a defense mechanism? Do you think teachers are vulnerable to violence after watching these videos? Please leave your opinions below in the comment section and share this story on your Facebook and Twitter page.
