State Representative Brad Klippert (R-Kennewick) wants to introduce a bill allowing teachers to carry weapons in the classroom:

Klippert, a Benton County sheriff's deputy, said he wants to collaborate with recently elected state Rep. Liz Pike, R-Camas, who suggested similar legislation in late December.

[...] The law he wants to draft would require any teacher wanting to have a weapon in the classroom to undergo a mental health evaluation and firearms training.

Pike could not be reached Thursday, but she has suggested in a Facebook post that teachers also would have to pay for their gun training, provide their own weapon and keep it on their person at all times.

I don't mean to generalize, but Republicans are fucking crazy.
