Arthur Goldstein dissects Trump’s idotic plan to arm teachers and explains why he doesn’t want to be armed. He has his hands full being a teacher. Trump is pandering to the NRA and wants to sell more guns, and they don’t care who buys them.

Trump doesn’t hear you. He doesn’t hear the students. He hears the NRA. He had to bring a crib sheet to his meeting with parents and students. The last written point was “I hear you.” What kind of a person brings a written reminder to say that at a “listening session?” Someone who isn’t listening.

The NYPD stat for hitting the target in a gun fight, he says, is 18%. What would it be for a teacher with a handgun facing a homicidal killer with an AR 15?

“If you’re Donald Trump, you think the classroom will be a safer place with a gun in it. You think that teachers have nothing else to do, and will instantly transform into Vin Diesel and hop into action when killers come in. Evidently, when the criminal enters the classroom with an AR-15, the teacher will pull out a handgun and subdue him. If I were a killer, I’d make it a point to enter the classroom and shoot the teacher first, just in case. I don’t think you need to be a rocket scientist to come to that conclusion.

“But what if I manage to get my gun out in time? What if I miss? What if I miss and hit one of the kids? What if I miss, hit one of the kids, and the gunman puts down seven or twelve more while I deal with my shock? What if I’m in the middle of a really great lesson and don’t want to interrupt it by shooting at the gunman? And what if I have a nervous breakdown, and rather than scream at the kid who made me mad, shoot him dead? Maybe I’m tired of calling his parents.

“I don’t think I’d do anything like that, but who knows? Cops aren’t perfect. They make mistakes, and being cops is their job. It’s not my job. I don’t even want to be dean. Why do I want to deal every single day with the most problematic students in the building? Sorry, but it’s all I can do to deal with the problematic students in my classes. Other people want to be deans. Should they be armed? I think not.”
