Teachers Don’t Need Guns

So, let’s cut the bullshit, son. Listen, teachers don’t need guns, man! Hell, their jobs are stressful enough as it is, fam! Are we really going to add “armed bodyguard” to their résumé, bruh? Look, outside of all of the Second Amendment talk, there are a variety of reasons why teachers shouldn’t be armed. With that being said, let’s go through some of them.

Ok, let’s start with Dennis Alexander, son. Now, for those who are unaware, Alexander is a teacher at Seaside High School in Monterey County, California. Anyway, in addition to being an instructor, Alexander is also a reserve police officer. So, on face value, he is the type of “gun-trained teacher” that Donald Trump wants. Moving on, let’s talk about what Alexander did the other day. Apparently, while giving a safety class, he pointed a loaded gun at the ceiling and accidentally fired it. From there, some debris hit a male student and he sustained some minor injuries.

Now, I’m totally happy that the kid wasn’t actually shot or harmed any further. However; this is the type of shit students don’t need in school, man! Listen, as a father, I’m sending my kids to school to learn. Shit, it’s bad enough that kids are going around shooting their own classmates. I don’t want to have to worry about a teacher hurting my child too, fam. Good fucking Lord, this is ridiculous, bruh! This isn’t what school is about, folks! On the real, if institutions are so dangerous that everyone needs to be strapped, then I might as well homeschool my kids, people.

Moving on, let’s address the naysayers who might conclude that Alexander’s blunder is just an isolated incident. Now, if no one out there is moved by my argument, let’s talk about the general plight of teachers. Look, in general, teachers are overworked and underpaid. Hell, instructors in West Virginia had to go on a full strike in order to get a 5 percent pay raise, son. So, we can’t pay them but we expect them to defend the school? On top of that, how long do we think it’ll take before someone points a gun at a student they have an issue with? Listen, I’ve seen A TON of videos of teachers assaulting kids, especially Black ones. Do we really think a gunshot is that far out of the realm of possibility?

In the end, can we stop the tomfoolery, man? Ultimately, we should worry about paying teachers their fair share instead of arming them. By and by, I truly don’t see any positives to this idea, fam. *Sigh* This country loves guns so much that they don’t care who gets hurt. At the end of the day, I do believe we have a right to arm ourselves. However; that right should also come with some basic common sense, bruh. When it’s all said and done, that’s the only thing that reasonable people are really asking for, folks. That is all. LC out.
