Student Who Slammed NRA After Favorite Teacher Opened Fire in Classroom Appears on CNN

Ever since the idea was broached by President Donald Trump during a White House listening session last week, the subject of armed teachers has been part of the ongoing gun debate. Now, a Georgia high school student is speaking out against the idea after her favorite teacher — who was armed — allegedly barricaded himself in a classroom and opened fire.

Chondi Chastain, a student at Dalton High School in Georgia, tweeted at the NRA after her teacher — Jesse Randall Davidson — is suspected to have fired his gun at school.

On Friday, Chastain appeared on New Day to elaborate on her stance.

“I already knew that it was a bad idea to arm teachers with guns,” Chastain said. “I just thought that it didn’t sound very logical. And after this happened, this just goes to prove that it’s not good.”

The student added, “if more teachers have guns, this could have been a lot more tragic than it was.”
