Letter to the editor: Arm teachers? No way

| Saturday, March 10, 2018, 9:00 p.m.

Arm teachers? Are you kidding? It's not enough that teachers must raise their students and teach them right from wrong, something parents should be doing, as they give them an education? Now teachers must go to war to protect our kids. There is something very wrong here.

President Trump said teachers should have guns to protect kids because they love them and the school security officers do not. Well, it looks to me like Trump and the right-wing politicians love their guns more than they care about kids.

My heart goes out to all of the people involved with school shootings across the country. I feel so bad for the kids growing up in these times.

I am very proud of all the kids out there trying to change things. I just hope they do not give up. Politicians, especially Trump, are very good at listening and letting you voice your opinion and hoping you will go away. Then they do nothing.

One sad truth is that things involving gun laws will never change as long as the NRA continues to donate millions of dollars to politicians.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
