I don’t agree with Trump or some of his nominees on just about anything but “BetsyDeVos would not oppose putting guns in our schools. I was shaken to the core by her answer. So should every American parent.”
See Citing grizzlies, Betsy DeVos says states should determine school gun policiesmaking all schools gun-free zones is just silly. Police/guards/staff should have firearms as an option to protect children against predators. I’ve lived in communities where a teacher was chewed up trying to rescue a child who was being dragged off by dogs. I’ve lived in a community where a polar bear did walk right through the playground a few minutes before the children were to be released into it. Such bears treat everything that moves as food. Then we have the murdering bastards who figure schools are just a target-rich zone.
I’ve taught in many northern/remote communties and while I don’t remember any school having firearms you can bet the immediate community neighbouring the school did. That polar bear was hunted down and killed within minutes. Those dogs were shot. I’ve lived on school property and I possessed a rifle for hunting. There’s nothing wrong with firearms on school property if they are properly managed.
