Arm Schools With Resources, Not Guns

Freya

Arming teachers is not a solution to school shootings. Educators want to teach, not be armed at school. Students and parents want schools to be safe and welcoming places.

Society & Culture  (tags: firearms, weapons, guns, communications, Internet, petitions )

Freya
- 190 days ago - act.credoaction.com
NRATV is the gun lobby's propaganda arm. It spreads dangerous misinformation and inflammatory, racist rhetoric to further the NRA's "guns everywhere" agenda.

Freya
