Donald Trump has a solution for the school shooting epidemic: arm teachers with guns.
So let’s dissect this idea.
First, in order for a teacher to be able to effectively combat a shooter with the popular weapon, an AR-15, he or she would have to have a weapon of equal power strapped onto his or her waist. A shotgun would never be able to stop someone with an AR-15, after all.
Do we want to live in a country, one with more guns per person than any other country already, where our teachers have an AR-15 strapped to their waist?
Second, and that part of this makes sense, this ‘strategy’ will sell more guns, and let’s face it, Trump owes the NRA and this would be his way of paying them back.
