Stop Efforts to Arm Teachers
One school shooting is one too many. Last year there were 97. This crisis must end.
President Trump and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos continue to support efforts to arm teachers with guns, calling for states and schools to consider this an option to deter school shootings.
Just one day after the heartbreaking STEM School shooting in Colorado, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill into law that allows teachers to carry firearms in school and at least 5 other states are considering legislation to do the same. Make no mistake, the way to prevent shootings isn’t adding more guns to our schools.
A broad coalition of elected officials, gun violence prevention organizations, and political organizations are taking action. Arming teachers is a recipe for disaster that we need to stop. Sign your name to help keep guns out of classrooms.
