Don't arm our teachers.

This shouldn’t even be a conversation.

BUT if you’re looking for reasons why this is a bad idea, here are just a handful of examples of how guns in schools have played out in the past courtesy of Everytown For Gun Safety:

  • A janitor killed two of his colleagues at a performing arts school in Florida (Palm Beach Post)

  • After being fired, a teacher returned to school with an AK-47 and killed the school headmaster and himself (CBS NEWS)

  • Teacher attempts suicide by gun in classroom before school (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

  • Officer accidentally discharges weapon at Middle School (Alexandria Times)

Arming teachers is just a bad idea. Let’s work on better solutions to keep our kids and communities safe.
