North Carolina teachers who carry guns to school could get a pay raise under a new bill

(CNN)North Carolina lawmakers are once again pushing to arm teachers with guns, and they're trying to make it worth teachers' while.

Filed on Wednesday, the School Security Act of 2019 would give a 5% salary boost to teachers who undergo basic police training.
 
These "teacher resource officers" could carry guns in an open or concealed manner, and they would have the same arrest powers as police officers, the bill says.
 
Most public schools in North Carolina already have a certified police officer, known as a school resource officer, a spokesman for the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction said.
 
Republican State Sen. Warren Daniel, one of the bill's sponsors, told CNN the proposal "is a way to put a lot of security on the ground in our schools."
 
He added, "It's extremely costly to put a school resource officer in every school ... and there's a great shortage of the number of applicants to law enforcement agencies. This bill is an attempt to bridge that gap."
Daniel and two other Republican lawmakers introduced the same bill last session, but it died in committee.

It is a stupid idea but at least this stupid idea recognizes that people who are given guns need basic police training.

The pressure of getting good grades is enough without having to worry about getting shot by some maniac.
