Just read in my local (red state, small town) rag that AR15 sales are brisk at the local gunpeddlers

Glad I pulled my kids out of their schools.

Note to self: avoid going to public places as much as possible.

Can't believe how tone deaf, defiant, truculent and downright mean these people are in the wake of dozens of mass shootings and needless gun deaths.

No wonder they don't believe in evolution. They never evolved.

You arm a teacher. You train the teacher. A gunman enters the school building.

You put down your lesson plan. You get your gun. You stalk the gunman. You effortlessly morph from teacher to police officer/marksman. What could happen next?

1. You shoot the gunman. You kill him. You now live with this memory for the rest of your life, but you're hailed as a hero.

2. You shoot at the gunman but miss. Your errant bullet takes down a student. You live with the guilt for the rest of your life.

3. You shoot the gunman and miss. He continues to mow down students. You live with the guilt for the rest of your life.

4. You shoot the gunman and miss. The gunman turns and shoots you. Welcome to America. You died a hero.

We want our teachers to parent our children when they're at school. We expect for them to impart knowledge and skill training regardless of whether the student wants it or the parents support it. We want them to discipline our children in lieu of doing it ourselves. And now we want for them to become a security force and protector of the kids as well?

I wouldn't sign up for that, not in a hundred years, and certainly not for the pittance you're offering me as compensation.
