What? Armed Teachers?

    I just heard on  TV Trump calling for armed teachers in our schools.  He said this would solve "the plague of school shootings".  This has to be the most stupid thing I've heard in a long time.  When I went to school we would have never thought of teachers carrying weapons.  I went to Catholic schools and the closest thing we had to an armed teacher was a nun with a baseball bat or paddle to ensure quiet in the classroom!  But of course back then we didn't have any AR-15 assault weapons around for the occasional student with behavior problems to purchase at the local hobby shop!  And not one school shooting! Also I remember  that the NRA was for hunters only! Oh how times have changed!
