5 Reasons Teachers Should be Armed

5.  To stimulate the economy.

4.  To show their students the Golden Rule--It's not for wimps, anymore.

3.  To better advocate for the arts and creative thinking.

2.  To prove might makes right.

1.  To take out bone-headed policy makers.


  1. Somehow I can't picture my lovely but ancient sophomore English teacher, Mrs. Warnell, packing a Beretta.

  2. Oh, my. Feeling fiesty, iI see.

  3. A few of the teachers I had would have shot each other by the end of the first day. Or shot an unruly student. Or shot themselves, by bumbling accident.

    As a taxpayer, I don't really feel like supplying guns to all our nation's teachers, because then we'll have to supply gas station workers, crossing guards, grocery store baggers, and everyone else who works in a place where gun violence has taken place. None of us will have a dime left, not to mention a pint of blood.

  4. To reach the majority of her students a skilled teacher needs to know so much--and that's not including the content area. It's absurd to require her to pack in order to address something that is a statistical improbability. If guns make us safe, why are we, the best armed society in the world, not?

  5. Is this the NRA's answer? Forcing someone to carry a gun is going to get stuck in court for decades. A waste in itself.
