  1. Unfortunately, there’s that insidious “Arm Teachers” lie again. “Arm” is a verb. It’s something you’d be doing TO teachers; arming them. As though they don’t get a say in the matter. That’s the big lie in all of this. It evokes images of poor old Mrs. Jones being dragged, kicking and screaming, out of her Kindergarten class and hauled, by grim men in sunglasses, to a shooting range where she’d be forced, crying and shaking, and against everything she believes in, to learn to shoot a 44 Magnum.

    In fact all anyone ever wanted was get the fuck out of the way of those teachers who already have training and carry permits, who are already carrying guns responsibly everywhere BUT the schools they work at, and allow them to also carry at school where they could then have a chance of defending innocents should the need arise.

    “Arm Teachers” my fit better on a cartoon pamphlet cover than, say, “Allow Armed Teachers”, but it’s among the more idiotic and deceptive of terms. It’s right up there with “Hope and Change” and “Make America Great Again”. Both of the latter are presumably things that government would be DOING TO US, and AT OUR EXPENSE, which is diametrically opposed to simply getting out of our way.

    No, Young Grasshopper; allowing armed teachers to also be armed at school is not a government program. It is the elimination of existing government interference. It isn’t something government would DO. It is something government would STOP DOING.

    • Good point. In the teen years, teens, especially boys, speak a much more violent game than all but the most depraved gangsters actually practice.

  2. What’s the saying? “For every problem there’s a solution that is simple, cheap, easy to implement and wrong.” “ineffective”? “Harmful”?
