At the annual winter gathering of State governors at the White House last Monday, President Trump took the opportunity to share his proposal to arm educators in order to prevent future school shootings.
In an apparent effort to prove he’s the “smartest person in the room”, Governor Jay Inslee (D-WA) interrupted the President to deride the idea:
“…so I just suggest we need a little less tweeting here, a little more listening…let’s just take that off the table.”
Just prior to Inslee’s outburst, The President had clarified that only a volunteer educator with a “natural talent” for handling firearms would be considered for a concealed carry weapon permit. “The headline was Trump wants all teachers to have guns…I don’t want teachers to have guns. I want highly trained people”, the President clarified.
So how about a little more listening, Governor Inslee? You are so busy shilling for your support group (teacher unions) that you miss the point…protecting our most valuable resource and the future of America…our children!
Noted conservative commentator Dennis Prager posted a timely Education Commentary the following day:“…the left rarely, if ever, explains why allowing some teachers and other adults in a school to be armed is a crazy idea. It merely asserts it as a self-evident truth…it’s not…on the contrary, having some adults who work at schools… trained in the responsible use of guns makes so much sense…the left doesn’t fight evil; it fights those who do…it hates those who wish to see teachers and others voluntarily armed take down the murderers of our children.”
So are YOU listening, Governor Inslee? An actual common sense solution is “on the table”. Open your closed mind and embrace the merits of it!
