    wasn't something suggested in the diary or article, how are you not threadjacking?

      the teacher training in this diary is tangental to the notion of mandatory firearm training and not threadjacking, as his comment sparked a lengthy thread including your response above.

      You responded to his comment by talking about respecting the Constitution. That is a thread jacking meme in every diary on the subject.

      As if training teachers to kill people (mandatory or voluntary) has something to do with the constitution.

      How many accidental and intentional shootings in our schools are are worth the slim possibility that armed teachers might prevent a murder by killing a would be shooter themselves first.

      Sorry but accidents are just that, accidents, pointing out that the behavior wasn't safe because an accident ensued is redundant.

      A response to gun violence that makes the problem worse is dumb. Making that dumb reaction mandatory is dumber.

      I think the thread proceeded appropriately.

        Where did you get that idea?

          There are people on this very site (38+ / 0-)
          who would like to see mandatory gun safety classes, and not just "don't touch guns, that's safe", but using actual firearms, in middle school and elementary classes.

          So, based upon the above news item, I might say, "Dumb ass idea?  Told you so."

          respect the entire constitution of the United States, not just the parts we like. ...

            I believe that we could teach kids not to touch guns -- and once the kids are old enough, we could teach them to recognize unsafe behavior, and avoid it.
