NEA President Goes Berserk Over Offers To Arm Qualified Teachers

This woman is completely off her rocker.

According to the National Education Association President Becky Pringle, the bipartisan agreement on gun control doesn’t ‘go far enough because it doesn’t offer a ban on guns. She felt particularly triggered by the widely supported movement to arm qualifying teachers. Pringle seems to think that it will lead to more violence in the school and spread the false narrative that teachers would be forced to carry.

Pringle stated, “We know that our educators all over this country are focused on teaching and nurturing and supporting our students. For there to be a law that has them armed, which, of course, puts more guns into schools, we know more guns equals more violence, and for them to bear that responsibility, it is absolutely, absolutely unconscionable, overwhelmingly do not support this. And let me tell you this statistic, in 2013, the state of Texas passed a similar law.

Only 361 out of a possible nearly 370,000 teachers who are in the state of Texas actually took them up on that. So, we know that’s not a solution. It’s not. It is a false idea that won’t do anything.”

“NewsHour” Correspondent Stephanie Sy then asked, “Just to be clear, my understanding of the Ohio law just signed is that it gives teachers the options.

So, I just want to say that one of the perspectives from supporters of arming teachers is that it gives them the ability to protect themselves and their classrooms if they choose to be armed. Is there any scenario in which you see, with the proper training, that a teacher should have that option?”

Pringle responded, “I’ve talked to teachers all over this country, and I will tell you, as a teacher who taught for over 30 years, educators always take that additional responsibility on. They always feel like it’s their responsibility to stand in the gaps for our students.

So when laws like these are proposed, it puts that pressure on them that the society believes that they are the ones that should be defending our kids with guns. That’s not OK to put that pressure on them. And we will continue to speak out against that.”


Kudos to Sy for clarifying that teachers will only be armed if “they choose to be” and not supporting Pringle’s bogus narrative.

Ohio school districts announced a new law that will offer the option for ‘qualified’ teachers. The new law, signed Monday by Republican Gov. Mike DeWine, will lower the required training hours for armed school personnel from about 700 hours to four scenario-based training hours, plus a maximum of 20 hours for first-aid training, history of school shootings, and reunification education.

The plan isn’t to just hand the lunch lady a firearm and hope for the best. Pringle is dead wrong for trying to turn this into something it’s not— and off her rocker in my opinion.
