Symbolic gesture from a group that winds up giving kids a symbolic education.

The manufacture didn't shoot anyone. The mother didn't shoot anyone. The mutual fund manager didn't shoot anyone.

But public school teachers being union and following socialists and their agenda feel the urge to be oh so politically correct.

Teaches. Push for teacher armed on site immediate response today. For the kids and for your own protection.

Funny that the teachers are pulling back from funding firearms while at the same time many California schools have armed guards now.

So do the teachers want those armed guards removed?

Does anyone see the ignorance to their move?
