Teacher’s Union Head: Keep Teachers Disarmed So More Can Be Slaughtered

Posted by on Dec 17, 2012 at 3:14 pm

Sure, why give them a chance to prevent the next slaughter? To think teachers pay union dues so their “leaders” can hasten their demise if, God forbid, they’re the next ones under attack from some maniac.

Michigan state senators voted Thursday to allow citizens with concealed carry permits to carry their weapons on school property, but the American Federation of Teachers argues that the Friday shooting in Connecticut proves people shouldn’t be armed at school.

“Firearms have absolutely no place in our schools—the Dec. 14, 2012, tragic massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., is a chilling and heartbreaking reminder of this,”wrote Randi Weingarten, president of AFT, and AFT Michigan president David Hecker in a letter to Gov. Rick Snyder, R-Mich.

“Permitting firearms in schools—visible or concealed—enables a dangerous set of circumstances that can result in similar tragic outcomes,” Weingarten and Hecker added in calling for Snyder to veto the legislation. “We should be doing everything we can to reduce the possibility of any gunfire in schools, and concentrate on ways to keep all guns off school property and ensure the safety of children and school employees.”

The mind boggles at such dangerous idiocy. If their smart they ignore this imbecile and quietly pack heat.

Meanwhile, if you’re a teacher who has self-preservation in mind, a kindly dealer is now offering discounts. Of course the idiots think this is a bad idea.

“I knew this would come up at some point, there would be people who think the answer is to put guns on campus. Frankly I think it’s absurd,” says Gayle Fallon with the American Federation of Teachers. “In a lot of cases, the perpetrator is a kid. Look at Columbine, it was a 14-year-old kid. You tell me a teacher is going to look in the eyes of a 14-year-old and pull the trigger — it’s not in their emotional make up.”

It sure will be if it’s their life or the killer.

    And yet, they showed up anyway, didn’t they?

    Isn’t it criminal to allow people this stupid to be in charge of teaching children?

    “Look at Columbine, it was a 14-year-old kid. You tell me a teacher is going to look in the eyes of a 14-year-old [who is slaughtering other 14-year-olds] and pull the trigger — it’s not in their emotional make up.”

    There, more fully expanded the inherent stupidity of that statement.

    Wait a minute everyone. Before I saw this story I was thinking of writing a “what-if union leaders came out against army teachers” post.

    The conclusion of my story was to be: “Union thugs cannot intimidate armed workers quite as well as they do armed ones. So nobody should be surprised at this stance.”

    Thanks to you Jammie, I don’t have to speculate on the precursor to make the point.

    That’s why we need better teachers.
