Arming teachers won’t make us safer
I go to a public charter school in Florida and I disapprove of arming some teachers. At our school, the guy that volunteered to take in the gun is an Army veteran. The students have discussed this and we do not support it. We all feel unsafe with arming teachers.
What if the teacher is having a bad day and a student is messing with them and the teacher pulls out their gun? What if the staff member fights with another staff member and pulls out the gun? There are too many risks with teachers having guns. We could have metal protectors at the front of schools, instead of arming teachers.
Students at my school feel unsafe and we believe we should not have armed teachers at our school in Pembroke Pines. I urge Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott, and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz to assure this does not happen.
