Trump wants to protect our children on the cheap.

These are his words,

Armed Educators (and trusted people who work within a school) love our students and will protect them. Very smart people. Must be firearms adept & have annual training. Should get yearly bonus. Shootings will not happen again - a big & very inexpensive deterrent. Up to States.

You know why spend the money to properly protect our children when you can do it on the cheap. Why invest in smaller classes so teachers can better get to know their students. Why invest in psychologists and social workers because so much of what happens at schools has nothing to do with schools.

Then he wants to give teachers who are already under paid a bonus if they will carry a gun? That's disgusting.

You know there have been bank robberies forever and nobody says, we should arm tellers, there have been shootings in movie theaters and nobody says arm the ushers either and after church shootings nobody says, arm the preachers, but for some reason people think arming teachers is acceptable? In fact in just about every aspect of life there has been gun violence but the answer hasn't been to arm the people who work there, but now the president wants teachers to carry weapons and if they ever have to use them to shoot most likely children.

I don't know what upsets me more, the presidents tone deaf and incompetent idea or the fact he wants to save money while implementing it.

What do you think it would be worth to save a child's life?
More guns is not the answer.


  1. Besides acting as parents, social workers and psychologists, we are now expected to be cops?

    How about the cops DO THEIR JOB? At Parkland and Columbine too, police stayed outside. I guess they didn't want to get shot. I don't either.

  2. I'm all for this proposal as long as the gun comes with a badge, pay raise, & new title. I want students to refer to their teacher as "warden" at all times. Seriously the NRA must be thrilled with this untapped market. One question: Can teachers I mean "wardens" be deputized?
