NC-Gov: Gov. Roy Cooper (D) Fights Back Against GOP Legislatures' Idiotic Plan To Arm Teachers

2 min read

Received this e-mail today from Governor Roy Cooper’s (D. NC) re-election campaign:

It’s a parent’s worst nightmare. A message from a son or daughter saying they love you, but there’s a shooter at school and they’re scared they won’t make it out.

As a parent and as the Governor of North Carolina, I must do everything I can to prevent a child from ever having to send such a message.

But instead of making meaningful changes that would make our children safer, Republican lawmakers want to arm North Carolina school teachers.

Having guns in the classroom is not how we keep our students safe. We need common sense gun reforms.

That’s why we need to stand up and make our voices heard against arming our teachers. Will you sign my petition and say NO to putting guns in our classrooms?

Not only is this not going to keep our students safe, but the vast majority of teachers also don’t want to arm themselves at school.

A poll from the National Education Association found that 82% of teachers said they would not carry a gun at school.

And the president of the North Carolina Association of Educators called the bill “a disaster waiting to happen.”

Arming teachers is not how we keep our students safe. It’s time for our lawmakers to get real and pass common-sense gun reforms that will keep our schools and our communities safe.

Please, add your name today and tell lawmakers to keep guns out of our schools.
