Veto SB 59! No guns in my children's schools! - NAM EthnoBlog

Excerpt from my article in New America Media:
My kids are remarkably blase about fire drills, tornado drills, lockdown drills. They've been prepped for everything. The coded PA announcement that triggers a lockdown is eerily benign. My daughter explains that they have two different kinds of lockdowns with two different protocols--one when there is an intruder inside the building and another when there is something wierd/dangerous going on in the neighborhood/outside the building. It is how unperturbed they are that strikes me.
Thanks to all our teachers. They don't pay you enough to have to deal with this, let alone to have to shoot back.
