Kristi Got Her Gun, Teachers Get 'Em Too

Published on: 1st May, 2024

We have a guest in this episode: Brenda Royal, Award Winning Biology Teacher from Tennessee. She responds to Tennessee lawmakers and their vision for a gun in every classroom as they vote to allow Tennessee teachers to carry concealed firearms. The Yank is pretty sure few of us will ever be trained enough to carry a gun in a school setting; teachers rarely have enough time to do their first jobs and will watch Jack Ryan on television but don't want to play him in real life.

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem shoots her dog Cricket in the gravel patch and herself in the foot. Former President Trump is looking for a different running mate now.

The Kraut just doesn't understand Americans. Take ten steps, turn, and fire.
