Corey Beirne needs to report the WGLT article as a campaign contribution. He is running for the McLean County Board and WGLT just happened to pick him for an interview him from all the teachers in the Unit 5 School District.
Beirne proves he isn’t qualified to hold an elected office however, so applause for WGLT!
Beirne thinks protecting schools with armed teachers is asinine. In Corey’s make believe world he thinks 2A defenders want school districts to buy guns for teachers and force them to carry it. Stop laughing now.
Beirne fails to see the obvious: Banning guns from schools make them an easy target for the mentally ill who want to kill. Schools are just like a neon sign flashing: Shoot here – nobody will stop you!
Teachers who want to conceal carry should be allowed. This school protects their students:
Nobody stops an armed shooter faster than a good guy with a gun. Teachers willing to protect students wouldn’t want school issued guns, they already have their own. Teachers like Beirne can cower in a corner while those trained and armed take out the shooter faster than waiting for police to arrive.
Actually with a big sign on the door shooters will look for an easier target, like the Meijer who now has a NON-COMPLIANT no guns allowed sign on their door.
The story also has quotes from Brandon Thornton, a D87 teacher. He of course thinks just like Beirne. He also thinks his salary is low. This is low – with summers off?
Gun violence is never solved because real issues can not be discussed. Gun confiscation will never happen. This story proves what works: https://americanmilitarynews.com/2022/05/woman-uses-concealed-carry-gun-to-stop-gunman-who-opened-fire-on-partygoers/
The last thing that should happen is arming all teachers, it isn’t even necessary. Allowing those willing to carry to protect others should be allowed. They would even protect Beirne and Thornton.
Beirne didn’t claim in this story to be underpaid, just in case he does:
