Snark Alley: Gun Debate, Solved: Merge the NRA with the NEA

The New Three R’s of Education: ‘Reading, Writing and Rifle Maintenance’

by Dan White

NRA Executive Vice President Wayne La Pierre suggested On NBC’s Meet The Press last month that the right response to the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting was to arm school security officers. Last week a group of Sarasota, FL area public school teachers took that idea and ran with it to a teachers-only firearms training class. Which made us wonder if this trend continues, is there some common ground between gun advocates and educators? Nyack Cartoonist Dan White took it from there, illustrating what a merger between the NRA and the NEA teacher’s union might look like.


Why take a field trip to West Point when we can learn about military readiness with long-range patrols right in our own backyard!

Of course, board of education contract negotiations with the teacher’s union will never be quite the same.

Dan White lives in Nyack with his wife and son. When he’s not working as an editor in Manhattan, he draws and writes blogs at Sarah Loves Picnics and Uncle Otto’s Free Fun Coloring Pages.
