Liz Pike, Republican Rep.-elect for 18th District in Washington, said that she is considering drafting a bill that would allow teachers to take a week-long CHL training course (at their own expense). Teachers could then buy their own guns and bring them to school if they so decide.
There are armed security guards in schools all over America. And have been for many, many years. Hell, David Gregory, Rahm Emanuel, and even Barack Obama send their kids to schools with armed security personnel inside the school to protect their children.
But of course the anti-gun, pro-killing zone (gun free zone) pantie wetters are opposed.
“Bringing guns into the learning environment is absolutely the wrong approach,” state Rep.-elect Monica Stonier, a teaching coach in Evergreen Public Schools, said Thursday. Stonier said she supports current gun laws, and that public schools make safety a top priority.
“I have been working in schools for 10 years, and we run a variety of safety drills for a variety of emergency situations,” Stonier said. If a stranger enters a school, “they are approached by several adults in a very short amount of time.”
This is just so infuriating. There really is no cure for stupid, is there?
There strategy should an armed shooter enter the school is “they are approached by several adults in a very short amount of time?” Wasn’t this the exact same strategy used at Sandy Hook Elementary? Do you really not see the
folly idiocy of sending unarmed adults out to confront an armed and deranged shooter?
Wouldn’t a much, much better strategy be to have one or more armed adults intercept and engage the shooter before they make their way deeper into the school and start shooting children?
What part of “the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun” don’t you understand?
