I thought teachers were supposed to be intelligent.
Maybe it’s the air at union headquarters.
Anyway, the AFT has proclaimed that there should be absolutely NO guns in schools.
This is not a joke; they actually believe that the next time some deranged, evil psychopath shows up at your child’s school, the best policy is to leave the school utterly defenseless.
After Michigan state senators voted last week that citizens who have concealed carry permits can bring them when they visit schools, leftist national AFT president Randi Weingarten joined the president of its Michigan chapter, David Hecker, in stating:
Firearms have absolutely no place in our schools—the Dec. 14, 2012, tragic massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., is a chilling and heartbreaking reminder of this. Permitting firearms in schools—visible or concealed—enables a dangerous set of circumstances that can result in similar tragic outcomes. We should be doing everything we can to reduce the possibility of any gunfire in schools, and concentrate on ways to keep all guns off school property and ensure the safety of children and school employees.
