Over lunch, I asked three retired school teachers if they would have wanted to carry a pistol during their 30 years in the elementary public school system.
Not only “no,” but a resounding “hell no.”
“Don’t put more guns around children.”
“It’s hard enough to teach, much less shoot.”
“Armed teachers would generate more and more home schooling.”
Those comments came within the first seconds of hearing the question. The teachers got so animated, I thought we were going to be asked to leave.
There’s more. Just ask the professional teachers organizations. Ask any teacher you might know. Ask the people on the front lines.
Yeah, sure. You’ll find some. But I’ll wager the overwhelming majority do not want guns in classrooms.
