And . . . he’s back. Just ahead of NRA Veep Wayne LaPierre breaking the NRA’s radio silence at the conservative CPAC conference (click here to live stream), President Trump unleashed a Tweetstorm stating his support for “allowing” specially trained gun-savvy teachers to arm themselves in defense of innocent life. The two Tweets above followed these Tweets . . .
No doubt Mr. LaPierre will echo the President’s sentiments. Or is it the other way around?
Anyway, CNN and other mainstream media outlets reacted immediately to the President’s proposal by rounding up the usual suspects: teachers who oppose their colleagues’ right to keep and bear arms without government infringement.
What’s missing here: a direct call to repeal Bush the Elder’s Gun Free School Zone Act.
Until and unless the Act is tossed, local school boards will have the final say as to whether or not any given teacher, administrator or (God forbid) parent can carry a firearm on campus lawfully, protecting the school from violent attack.
