WA Governor Confronts Trump: Take Guns for Teachers ‘Off the Table’
Gov. Jay Inslee (D-WA) challenged President Trump on his controversial proposal to arm teachers with concealed-carry weapons, during a White House meetings with governors on Monday. Inslee said that both law enforcement and educators were concerned about teachers “packing heat” in classrooms. “So I just suggest we need a little less tweeting here, a little more listening,” said Inslee. “Let’s just take that off the table and move forward.” The president then called on Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) to explain how teachers are trained to carry guns in his state.
