Gun Fetishist Larry Pratt: Teachers Who Protect Kids In School Shooting Aren't Heroes

An unintended consequence of the Sandy Hook massacre as well as every other mass shooting in this country is that nuts like Larry Pratt find a platform to say the most egregious things imaginable.

An unintended consequence of the Sandy Hook massacre as well as every other mass shooting in this country is that nuts like Larry Pratt find a platform to say the most egregious things imaginable. And they whip up the population of similar gun freaks to say just as nutty things as well. I know conservatives hate teachers because they belong to a union, but this is off-the-charts crazy. In this audio that Right Wing Watch grabbed, Larry Pratt agrees with a caller who said teachers aren't heroes when they try to protect kids from a crazed gunman.

Miranda Blue:

On VCY America’s Crosstalk last week, Gun Owners of America executive director Larry Pratt agreed with a caller who said that unarmed teachers who protect students during school shootings aren’t heroes.

“When you see these stories on the news about teachers, and they’re saying they’re heroes because they’re running and hiding and locking doors and everything, and that’s supposed to be a heroic act. I think it’s sheer terror,” the caller complained.

“I’d rather they be a hero with a good shot,” Pratt agreed

My God, I....I have no further comment.
