Donald Trump calls for teachers to be armed after Florida school shooting
President Trump said teachers should be armed as he spoke to school shooting survivors and victims’ families in an emotionally charged meeting at the White House last night.
A sad day I think when Donald Trump said he thought arming school teachers in schools was a serious idea. It seems to me that he is trying to keep the gun lobby on side rather than thinking through any particular train of thought logically. As a consequence I think many may reconsider his motives to other previous strategies and thinkings.
The real red herring here is the mental health issue; it seems to be banded about as a justification for gun ownership, when in fact it just goes to show a general misunderstanding of the issues and implications of mental health in general. The United States is such a wonderful nation in so so many ways but falls flat at such a rudimentary hurdle and is totally beaten by foolishness and lack of mettle.
