In an interview with CNN a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School teacher was asked about the idea of arming teachers with guns to prevent shootings at her school ever again. Her answer was very shocking to say the least.
According to Diane Wolk-Rogers, if we were to allow her and her fellow teachers to have guns, they will shoot up a bunch of black children…
“If what you’re telling me is that we have trained professionals who weren’t able to follow protocol, then I can’t imagine my teachers—overworked, underpaid, exhausted— carrying a sidearm, and then being able to perform that protocol,” responded Rogers. Then it became racial.
“And I also, I want to talk about the white elephant in the room. Because what we know is that students of color get suspended and get expelled at a higher rate than white kids. So, now, what are we going to say, Mr. Trump? We’re going to say that now students of color are going to be shot at by teachers at a higher rate? It’s absolutely ludicrous. It horrifies me,” said Rogers.
The guns are made for shooting school shooters, not shooting children for misbehaving. Did you find her comments to be very alarming? Check out the video below.
