The shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida has reinvigorated gun control advocates and left President Donald Trump offering a range of ineffectual proposals to ostensibly counter school shootings. Trump's most controversial suggestion has been to arm certain school teachers with guns, an idea condemned by public health experts, teachers, and now, Cardi B.
The "Bodak Yellow" rapper shared a meme on Instagram highlighting the discrepancies between the low salaries teachers receive and the enormous burden carrying a firearm entails. "Imagine a old ass female teacher bussing a burner," she wrote for the image's caption. "This man really out his mind. America must be entertainment to other countries."
A new poll found American's split on the prospect of giving certain teachers guns: 44% would support arming more teachers, and 50% said they would oppose it.
