Teacher Accidentally Shoots Student in Gun Safety Class

Sarah Winchester was so afraid of the ghosts killed by the guns her husband’s company manufactured that the house she lived in was in a state of constant construction with doors leading nowhere and new additions being constantly added so that the spirits couldn’t find her to take their vengeance. To give you an idea of what the Winchester Mystery House is like, it opened to the public in 1923, shortly after Sarah Winchester’s death, and they found a previously undiscovered room in 2016. Today’s gun manufacturers, who lack the guilty conscious of Sarah Winchester, have suggested that the way to end school shootings is to put more guns in schools.

In the wake of the Parkland shooting that left 17 students of Stoneman Douglas High School dead, we’ve heard a lot of people express a lot of ideas about how to end these sorts of school shootings. One of the dumbest has come from the NRA, who says that the answer is to give teachers guns. And if you don’t believe me, a California teacher, who is a reserve police officer, accidentally fired a gun and injured a student in gun safety class.

Dennis Alexander, who is Seaside City’s mayor pro tem and a reserve officer with the Sand City Police Department, was teaching a lesson at Seaside High School in Seaside when he pointed his gun into the ceiling and accidentally fired it, said Abdul Pridgen, the city’s police chief.

A 17-year-old student was injured by a bullet fragment or by debris that fell from the ceiling, Pridgen said.

See, if we were to arm teachers to stop school shootings, it wouldn’t just be any teacher, it would be teachers trained in the safe use of firearms, like a reserve police officer who teaches gun safety. So this Keystone Cop who accidentally fired his gun during a gun safety course is the NRA’s answer to keeping our children safe. One of the people who thought that arming teachers was a good idea was the father of the injured student. He has since changed his mind.

Gonzales said Tuesday’s incident changed his views about President Donald Trump’s recent proposal to arm teachers.

“I was kinda leaning toward having armed people in school in case something happened. After today, I get why people say there should be no guns in schools,” Gonzales said.

“If there’s an accident — people could die. If it’s just one, that’s more than enough,” he added.
