I think this will be the next deflection off the gun issue. The pro NRA crowd has really latched onto the arm the teacher approach rather than discuss gun laws. The right in general also seems to not like teachers and believe they do not really work that hard. Like they get summers off and work 6 hour days right? So why do they want more money? I work 8-10 hours a day all year. So what is so bad about expecting them to learn a skill that protects my kids? A skill that is by the very American so why would they have an issue? So it seems believable to me that soon the expectation will be some kind of boot camp training with the military over the summer. They can learn how to be small teams like SWAT or SEAL. Because that is the goal when you have "good guys" working together it's hard for bad guys. They will say the teachers will receive a bonus for doing this but the longer it goes on and the more right wing the school district it will slowly become a standard expectation of the job. Does this seem like a good idea or possible to anyone else?
