Arming teachers

I've written to you countless times about gun violence in this country. Ghost guns. Mass shootings. The dark money flooding our elections from organizations like the NRA.

We're failing our kids. They're taking on the burden of their own safety. They're working against powerful institutions, and the agenda of people like Betsy DeVos.

In an unprecedented move, Donald Trump's Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos wants to allow school districts to buy guns with taxpayer dollars.

Sign the petition and tell Congress: Stop Betsy DeVos from arming teachers and further endangering our children.

The gun lobby's push to arm teachers puts profits ahead of the safety of students and teachers and distracts from real gun safety reform. We can't allow their heartless, hazardous agenda to threaten our children's safety.

Guns have no place in schools. Tell Congress: Stop Betsy DeVos from arming teachers and further endangering our children.

Congress must pass comprehensive gun safety laws and block any moves to use federal funds to arm teachers.
