WATCH: Teacher Says If You Arm Teachers, She'll Shoot a Student
The current school safety debate is focused on giving teachers the tools they need to protect their students.

Let's be charitable. I'm sure this teacher had her tongue firmly pressed against her cheek. She probably thought she was being funny, repeating one of the most common responses to people opposed to this school safety measure.
One question though. Do people not realize that saying this makes THEM look bad and not the policy?
If you're saying you lack the self-control to not point a gun at a student for sass-mouthing you, that's on you. Not the school safety measure. You might want to consider a different job where being able to control your emotions isn't as important of a job requirement. Like, say... demolition. Finger painting. Gardening. Not having to deal with groups of teenagers all day. As ideas.
You may also want to not run for president as a Democrat. I know that's becoming quite the field of interest.
