Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst is pro-gun. He’s so pro-gun that he wants the taxpayers to pay to train teachers and school staff to be ready for an armed intruder. Yes, a Republican is saying that more government is the solution.
While that would be newsworthy in and of itself on a normal day, it’s what Dewhurst said in defense of his big government solution that is truly astounding. Via Huffington Post:
Dewhurst said the eight hours of class instruction and two hours of shooting training for a concealed handgun license is “not sufficient” for school employees.
“It doesn’t teach how to respond emotionally and technically” to a potentially chaotic situation where young lives could be at stake, he said.
