Cardi B Perfectly Explained Why Teachers Shouldn't Be Armed With Guns Using This Meme And People Are Here For It

Even military officials have spoken out against giving educators weapons.

Published February 23, 2018

After the devastating killing of 17 students and adults at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, President Donald Trump has discussed the idea of giving "adept" teachers with "military training" guns at school. Not only have many politicians come out against his idea, but rapper and Instagram queen Cardi B shared a meme that perfectly explains why Trump's idea is terrible. 

On Thursday, the “Bartier Cardi” rapper shared several memes that criticized Trump's idea of expecting teachers to defend students while also earning a significantly low wage. 

  1. Cardi B's post expressed why teachers can't be expected to pack, shoot, and protect while making a wage just above the poverty line
  2. Cardi also suggested that only putting metal detectors in urban schools are part of the problem
  3. Although they were just memes, Cardi B's were called facts
  4. Even military officials have disagreed with the idea of arming educators

    “There is a gulf between being taught how to handle a weapon, and learning to fight. Those are two distinct things,” Brandon Friedman, a former Army captain who was deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan and later served in the Obama administration, told BuzzFeed News. “And learning how to fight, how to stand your ground when an aggressor is trying to kill you, that’s not something that comes naturally to people.”

    “So in order to teach, now you have to be a soldier? That’s insane,” he added.

    The veteran also called out NRA Vice President Wayne LaPierre and others for suggesting teachers should be armed when they have never served in combat.

    “They have this Hollywood view of what a gunfight is like,” Friedman said. “Veterans know first hand (that) until you’ve been shot at, and seen how people react in these situations, you can’t wrap your mind around it.”
