The decision to arm teachers struck a sexist chord last week when a lawmaker with the Alabama legislature decided to speak out about “lady teachers” and how they’re “afraid of guns”. The guy is a Democrat. Even though it’s up to each teacher to decide on being armed, this sexist guy is living in the dark ages. Women are VERY capable of arming themselves!
We recently reported on a CNN analyst who said because women wear skirts and dresses, they couldn’t conceal a weapon:

A CNN analyst insisted Saturday that arming school teachers is impractical, arguing that women who wear skirts and dresses can not carry guns on their person.
“A lot of these schools—Sandy Hook had an all-female faculty, from principal to teachers,” noted CNN senior law enforcement analyst Tom Fuentes. “For a woman, where are you going to hide that gun during the day?”
Speaking during a Alabama House committee hearing on Thursday, Republican state Rep. Harry Shiver said, “We don’t need to have a lady teacher in a school that’s got a firearm. I taught for 32 years, and it is mostly ladies that’s teaching, and they got more things to worry about than a gun.”
Democratic state Rep. Mary Moore backed up Mr. Shiver’s comments, saying, “You could go to four or five schools in a row, and there’s not one male in any of those schools to do much of anything,” NBC affiliate WSFA reported.
“And you know why these superintendents do that?” she asked. “They will hire a female over a male teacher because they say it’s easier to control a female teacher.”
Lawmakers were discussing a bill, sponsored by Republican state Rep. Will Ainsworth, that would allow school systems to designate trained teachers and administrators to carry guns on school campuses, AL.com reported. The Public Safety Committee approved the bill Thursday morning.
“Lady teachers” aren’t scared!
