The NRA claims that the way to prevent gun violence in schools is to arm teachers, but a recent incident at an Indiana school in which a teacher has a reported "meltdown" and writes the following on the chalk board is a frightening indication of why this is a very bad idea:

                                           A) You are idiots!!!!!!!!
                                           B) The guns are loaded!!!
                                           C) Care to try me ?????????
Would you want this teacher authorized to carry a gun to prevent gun violence in the schools?

I can think of three or four teachers from my k-12 education who would sometimes have "meltdowns" and rage out of control. Thank god they weren't armed.
