On Teachers and Guns

On teachers having guns: I love teachers, they have one of the most important jobs there is and a difficult one at that. Teachers, underappreciated, overworked, underpaid, frustrated, frustrated for resources, frustrated with difficult children, and frustrated with inability to give the time and attention to help to the children that struggle but try so hard and really deserve it. Mocked, laughed at, and ridiculed by kids all day, not because kids are bad, just because that’s what some kids do. Frustrating. Carrying the weight of these pressures and at the same time adding the huge responsibility of protecting our children with deadly force. That pressure is just too heavy a burden. It seems to me like another tragedy just waiting to happen, just a matter of time.

Teachers are already Heroes, they do not need the added pressure of being Action Heroes as well, teaching the children is an enormous responsibility all by itself.

I have plenty to say about the acquiring and ease of accessibility of firearms, but I’m going to leave it at that for now.
