Teacher injures student with accidental gunshot

Posted By on Wed, Mar 14, 2018 at 10:02 AM

By popular demand: A California teacher, also a reserve police officer, accidentally fired his gun in a California classroom. The bullet hit the ceiling and falling debris injured a student. This happened during a gun safety class.

And we want to put guns in the hands of more teachers?

I asked this question on Twitter last night of gun-happy Rep. Charlie Collins and Sen. Trent Garner. Only Collins responded.

I said, no, I'm saying we don't need to arm teachers. They already have a full-time
job.

Even trained law officers are fallible. Link is to story about an accidental gunshot by a school police officer in a Virginia middle school.
