Uh… Does This Set Off Any Alarms For You!?

Teaching in Nevada is never dull. Last Year state senator Bob Beers (yes that’s his real name) made headlines by proposing Nevada teachers be armed with guns and trained to use them.

    I want you to pause, and think a minute about which of your colleagues would WANT to do this. Be scared, be very scared.

    This doesn’t surprise me a whole lot. I’m married to a commercial airline pilot who never owned a gun until after 9/11 when the federal government began training to fill our skies with what I like to call “gun totin’ pilots”.

    We have become a society that is afraid not to be armed. The NRA must be very proud.
