Teachers as gun control advocates

Here’s an interesting idea in the gun control fight – a nationwide strike by teachers. But one commenter said this is a lot to ask of teachers. I agree. They didn’t sign up to be gun control organizers. They signed up to educate our children and give them a better future. Sadly, they and the students are too often the targets. I would contribute to a strike fund to help teachers and their families. Maybe a portion of it could be used by the teachers to run tutoring sessions for the kids likely to fall behind. This all seems extreme and complicated, I know, but desperate times. How much easier would it be for Republican politicians (and some Democrats, too, by the way) to stand up to the NRA and the gun extremist supporters?
