Trump Suggested Giving Guns To Teachers, and People Had THOUGHTS
There are a lot of great teachers in the world, but do you really want them to be armed at school? Well, when that was suggested this week after the latest school shooting, people definitely had some thoughts on the matter (mostly "HELL NO!"). Whatever your opinion is, though, the following takes are pretty good at illustrating why that solution might not be the best.

All I ask is if we arm the teachers, the librarians get silencers.

As a teacher, I knocked myself out headbutting ceiling pretending to be a particle, star-jumping off a desk.
I've set my arm on fire when lit ethanol trickled down sleeve, from my hand.
I've burnt my ear listening if gas was coming out of a bunsen.
Please don't give me a gun.

every teacher should be given a freaking gun and instead of books they should bring back spike tv and let all the boys watch manswers and let all the girls watch lip sync battle and for lunch it’s ice cream sundaes everyday and that’s why u should re-elect me for senate

You know what would solve the high school drug problem? Give the teachers drugs too so that way there’s more drugs.

The assigned Sheriff’s deputy being unable to bring himself to confront the Parkland shooter makes the answer clearer than ever: strap up Mr. Wilson the chem teacher and expect him to do some gun kata

The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is Mrs. Murray, your 80 year old Algebra II teacher who pronounces “scissors” with a hard C.

I know what will make teachers less stressed out & overworked!!! Adding the responsibility of being a line of tactical defense.

Definitely want to establish “teacher” as another career path for “guy who couldn’t become a cop but wants to have a gun at work”

Hi, I'm a teacher. I don't want a gun. I could use some more dry erase markers. Thanks for your time.
