Arming teachers? 'Ladies carry weapons just fine,' state school board member, a veteran, says

A member of the Alabama school board - herself a veteran - is firing back at a lawmaker's comments regarding female teachers carrying guns.

Mary Scott Hunter, a decorated veteran of the Air National Guard with stints in Kuwait, Korea and Germany, posted a tweet in response to comments by State Rep. Harry Shiver, R-Stockton, about arming women teachers. Shiver, who opposes plans to allow some teacher to carry firearms, said lawmaker should protect "ladies" and that most female teacher are "scared of guns" and should not be expected to carry them in the classroom.
