WATCH: Badass Teacher Tells ABC Why She Carries a Glock, Why Other Teachers Should Too
We must be entering an alternate reality. ABC featured a Glock toting teacher on "Nightline." Maybe there is hope for liberal media after all. Kidding of course (see Dana Loesch at CPAC 2018 Scorches Media for Loving School Shootings and Worst Media Reactions to Florida High School Shooting).

Gun bans warrant no protection for students, teachers, or that vulnerable single mother down the street. Here's why:
