Teachers Are Asking for This Instead of Guns

As you’ve all probably heard by now, President Trump is suggesting that one possible remedy for shootings like the one in Florida this week is to give teachers guns. (Though he later refined that to “concealed guns to gun adept teachers with military or special training experience.”) Totally different.

Then today, teachers responded with a new campaign calling for arms of a different kind. “The vast majority of school personnel are uninterested in carrying a weapon into a building full of hundreds or thousands of children each day,” Olivia Bertels, one of the founders of  the new movement #ArmMeWith explained to USA Today.

Other teachers quickly picked up on this hashtag, sharing their own ArmMeWith Instagrams. You can check some of them out below:
