  1. Betsy DeVos wants teachers to have guns in school to protect children from armed shooters who rarely exist. The trauma of "active shooter drills" on naive children does much more harm than potential good. The best prevention against school shootings is better gun control.

    From the Washington post on 08/01/18 Since 1999, children have committed at least 145 school shootings. Among the 105 cases in which the weapon’s source was identified, 80 percent were taken from the child’s home or those of relatives or friends.
