Are Guns for Teachers a Good Idea?

The following article, Are Guns for Teachers a Good Idea?, was first published on Flag And Cross.

A teacher from Fayetteville, Arkansas Trey Antonetti, posted some words worth pondering in the wake of another school shooting: He said:

To those in the general public screaming “Arm the teachers! Give the teachers guns!”…let me get this straight… You don’t trust us to teach our content — there are so many bills going to state legislatures undermining the expertise teachers bring to the field. We need to publish a year’s worth of lesson plans because you don’t believe we’re actually teaching, right?

You don’t trust us when we say your student is the reason they’re failing when they are skipping class, aren’t submitting assignments, are playing both sides of the field and are dropping the ball, but it must be the teacher’s fault, right?

You don’t trust us to discipline students when they act out or abuse the system, because they’re precious little angels, and we’re the problem, right?

When I was a Kid there were Gun Clubs inside the School! Now Thanks to the diligent work at undermining Children’s Morals, and using the Schools as an Indoctrination Center, that is no longer feasible!
