“To be honest, I don’t know,” Ivanka Trump told NBC News in South Korea, where the first daughter and senior White House adviser led the US delegation to the closing ceremony of the Winter Olympics.
“Obviously, there would have to be an incredibly high standard for who would be able to bear arms in our school. But I think there is no one solution for creating safety,” the mother of three said.
When asked if she would advise the president on school safety, she said: “I think that having a teacher who is armed who cares deeply about her students or his students and who is capable and qualified to bear arms is not a bad idea, but it is an idea that needs to be discussed.”
Always a solid move to say ‘to be honest, I don’t know’ when asked about one of the biggest issues facing the country that your father currently runs. For everyone out there thinking that Ivanka could have a serious future in politics, just remember hey, she doesn’t ‘know’.
At some point, you need to develop opinions about things when you’re in the White House every day.
First, I should explain how insane it is to give teachers the responsibility of both educating children as well as carrying firearms.
The amount of training that would be required in order to feel confident that these teachers are skilled and prepared to use these weapons effectively combined with the amount of time it takes to build a curriculum and daily lesson plans subtracted by the remarkably low salaries we give these teachers all leads to ‘GIVE TEACHERS GUNS’ being the dumbest political movement since The War on Drugs.
The problem with school shootings is not that teachers cannot defend themselves. The problem is that guns are far too accessible. Solving the gun problem with more guns is like attempting to lose weight by eating an extra meal every day.
Ivanka Trump is the perfect example of the ‘standard American’ who doesn’t really have an opinion on anything but when pressed she shrugs and says ‘yea fuck it. Give them guns or whatever’.
Dumb people are in charge.
