Arming teachers is not the solution to school violence, WEAC President Ron Martin says

WEAC President Ron Martin told WTMJ TV in Milwaukee Thursday that arming teachers is not the solution to school violence. “I think there’s some danger in creating legislation or policy that allows educators to carry guns in our public schools or even private schools for that matter,” Martin said.

He said policy-makers need to listen to students who are calling for common-sense gun laws in the wake of the deadly Florida school shooting.

“Our kids are telling us what needs to happen and we need to listen to them. We need to listen to them and take their advice.”
