I, like many others these days, am alarmed by the shootings in schools and concerned with a solution to this growing problem. In the above named story there is a puzzling paragraph that reads:
“The latest version of the legislation allows school boards to decide what type of weapons their employees carry and even how much ammunition.
Employees who have showed signs of mental or emotional instability could not be armed in school, though the decisions on whether an employee should be disqualified would rest with local school officials.”
Does anyone besides me see the irony in that statement? Does the school knowingly employ anybody with a mental or emotional instability? Isn’t that a danger to the students? These are the type of people who are doing all this shooting, for Heaven’s sake. Just saying.
