TEACHERS LAUNCH #ARMMEWITH MOVEMENT IN RESPONSE TO PRESIDENT TRUMP’S COMMENTS ABOUT GIVING TEACHERS GUNS

"#ArmMeWith Books"

It’s sad that the notion of teachers carrying guns in school is even a thought, but nevertheless, President Trump corrected previous statements that charged him with saying that all educators should be armed with weaponry on Thursday. The president took to Twitter to explain himself.

“I never said ‘give teachers guns’ like was stated on Fake News @CNN and @NBC,” he tweeted. “What I said was to look at the possibility of giving concealed guns to gun adept teachers with military or special training experience – only the best. 20% of teachers, a lot, would now be able to.”

All of the talk of guns in schools stems from the most recent school shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida in which seventeen people were killed by a lone gunman. The school actually had an armed deputy on duty during the tragedy who waited outside for at least four minutes as bullets ravaged the halls of the school. President Trump placed much of the blame on the deputy. Meanwhile, the survivors of the devastation and millions of others are joining forces to call for improved gun control.

Perhaps, the silver lining to all of this talk of arming teachers with guns is the movement that educators have launched on Twitter called #armmewith. Some of the responses have been nothing short of brilliant. Check them out below!
