Yes we know that the GOP hates teachers, just as they hate government workers of all stripes. However, this was not a hate crime it was just a stupid.
Arkansas state Sen. Jeremy Hutchinson (R) is an advocate of giving guns to school personnel. What could go wrong with that?
In fact Jeremy is leading a legislative committee on the subject of giving guns to school teachers and is such an advocate that he personally participated in an "active shooter" drill earlier this year.
During the drill he accidentally shot a teacher who was confronting a "bad guy".
Fortunately for the teacher the gun Jeremy was using was of the rubber bullet kind.
“It was intense, enlightening and when we weren’t being shot, it was fun,” said Sen. Hutchinson. “I learned how little I knew about school safety.”
