There have been 18 fatal shootings at US schools this year, in the past 46 days Shocked

Quote:
Donald Trump tweeted his condolences shortly after, writing: ‘My prayers and condolences to the families of the victims of the terrible Florida shooting.

‘No child, teacher or anyone else should ever feel unsafe in an American school.

‘My thoughts and prayers are with the students, their families and the entire community.



Not the sensible approach of restricting gun ownership, this translates to "let's arm the teachers"...

Quote:
Teachers are being trained to carry guns in classrooms in Colorado in order to protect children as part of a scheme motivated by a school massacre in 2012.

The three-day course, which consists of firearms and medical training, was launched on Tuesday in Weld County.

Seventeen members of staff who "would like to be considered armed first responders" have so far taken part.

The pilot programme will allow volunteers to enter schools with guns under US "concealed carry" laws.

Laughs out loud it wouldn't surprise me, they've been influencing government policy for years and resisting any restrictions.

I wonder if any NRA supporters have been affected by these kind of shootings and have changed their opinions Scratches Chin

So the best solution according to Trump is to arm teachers. Way beyond satire.

In the years to come so many adults would have been witness to school/mass shootings that the tide has to turn. All these 'kids' that are being dismissed now will be voting age soon.

Miss Sloane

8/10 for this highly topical movie about extending background checks on gun purchases.

Free on Amazon Prime movies

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miss_Sloane

Quote:
Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain) is a cutthroat lobbyist who has been called to appear at a congressional hearing led by Senator Ronald Sperling (John Lithgow) to answer questions about possible violations of Senate ethics rules during her tenure at Washington D.C. lobbying firm Cole Kravitz & Waterman.

Three months and one week earlier, Sloane's firm is approached by gun manufacturing representative Bob Sanford (Chuck Shamata) to lead the opposition to the proposed Heaton-Harris bill that would expand background checks on gun purchases, specifically by targeting female voters. Sloane ridicules Sanford's idea and is later approached by Rodolfo Schmidt (Mark Strong), the head of rival lobbying firm Peterson Wyatt, to instead lead the effort in support of the bill.

How many of these armed teachers are actually a) earning enough and b) brave enough to go and confront a manic with a semi automatic wandering around shooting people. I'd be running or hiding.

Wasn't there an armed security guard at this latest school who basically told them he wasn't going anywhere near that kid. I don't blame him, he'll be on minimum wage.

I also like to refer to Jim Jeffries thoughts on arming teachers...

"Does anyone remember that
casual teacher that used to...
Whenever she came into school,
that relief teacher came,
you and your friends would see her and go,
"Oh, we're gonna make her cry."
And then she'd stand in front
of the class with a bit of chalk
and her hands would be shaking,
and you'd go,
"You're never getting
married, are you, Miss?
Never gonna happen for you."
Then she'd get back to
her 1967 Volkswagen Beetle,
and she'd be crying
over the steering wheel,
just, "Why don't they like me?"
Let's give that cunt a gun
and see how things work out!"

Trump would have charged in there empty handed.

Shame he wasn't in the area.
