A pro-gun professor just went viral responding to Trump’s preposterous call to arm teachers

- Februari 21, 2018

Today, President Trump held a listening session with the survivors and families of victims of gun violence. He hosted the event at the White House and asked his guests to share their tragic stories and throw out ideas for possible solutions to the gun violence epidemic. The session was scheduled in response to the heartbreaking shooting last week at Stoneman Douglas High School.

During the proceedings, Trump brought up the absurd idea that the best way to prevent school shootings is to arm teachers. Republicans are willing to invent the most absurd “solutions” to this growing problem as long as it allows them to avoid talking about the real problem: guns.

Teachers have enough to worry about as is without strapping a Glock to their waist. The suggestion is also made doubly ridiculous by the fact that many of our schools are grossly underfunded. Some can’t even afford heating or books, but now the Republicans suddenly think there is money to flood them with firearms? It’s a staggeringly stupid idea.

Twitter user @JoshuaGrubbsPHD, who purports to be a college professor, shredded Trump’s inane proposal. He introduced himself as a gun owner who has been around gun his entire lives before explaining that even if he, with all his expertise, wouldn’t feel comfortable using a firearm in a classroom. He then unleashed an epic tweetstorm, breaking the issue down into fine detail.
