When the Secretary of Education feels brazen enough to admit on national TV that allowing teachers to carry concealed weapons is “stupid,” then, well, we might have a problem.
A major component to Democrats successfully crowbarring massive social change into the fabric of America is their willingness to exploit children for the emotional factor. Instead of presenting an argument, they deem logical, Democrats will appeal to emotion instead, tugging at the heartstrings of well-meaning but otherwise uninformed Americans.
Such was the case on Thursday when Education Secretary Miguel Cardona claimed that arming teachers with concealed weapons was among the “stupidest proposals” to take from Republican lawmakers.
His argument, however, is what’s stupid.
Sec. Cardona argues that arming teachers would not be effective in quelling school shootings because sometimes teachers need time off, and guns cannot just be handed off to the substitute.
Yes, you read that correctly.
Cardona joined the incredibly fair and balanced ladies on ‘The View’ to discuss the Biden administration’s approach to tackling gun violence in schools. Co-host Sunny Hostin asked the Education Secretary, “In your view, do you support teachers carrying guns in the classroom?”
“Those are some of the stupidest proposals I’ve heard in all my time as an educator. So that’s my answer to that,” Cardona replied emphatically.

Stupid how? Stupid in the sense that an armed teacher could prevent a psychopathic gunman from murdering countless children? Stupid in the sense that armed school staff could deter a deranged individual from even committing a school shooting?
Doesn’t seem that stupid to anyone with two brain cells (or a political agenda to push.)
Cardona went on to argue that anyone who was in favor of arming teachers was “clueless when it comes to what’s happening in our schools” and was showing “further disrespect” to teachers.
Isn’t this the same man who advocated for keeping children locked in their homes to stop the spread of a virus that statistically doesn’t even harm them?
He also claimed that republicans who were promoting arming teachers were doing so to raise their own “national profile” rather than out of any concern for children’s safety.
What a vile creature.
