‘Jesus Christ. Grizzly bears?’: Internet loses it as DeVos pushes guns in schools to stop grizzly attacks

               

Waving Grizzly gif on Twitter

Donald Trump’s pick to head the Department of Education had a particularly rough hearing on Tuesday, taking a battering from Minnesota Senator Al Franken (D-MN) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)

However, nothing quite caught the flavor of how poorly her hearing went than her response to Sen. Chis Murphy (D-CT) who asked her, “Do you think guns have any place in or around schools?”

After saying the availability of guns should be “best left to locales and states to decide,” Devos replied to further questioning on guns on campus by adding, “I will refer back to Senator Enzi (R-WY) and the school he was talking about in Wyoming … I would imagine that there is probably a gun in the schools to protect from potential grizzlies.”

You can probably guess how that was met with the quipsters on Twitter.


Betsy DeVos may or may not support guns in schools because of grizzly bears.

"We need guns in schools because of grizzly bears." You know what else stops bears? Doors. https://thinkprogress.org/betsy-devos-says-guns-in-schools-may-be-necessary-to-protect-students-from-grizzly-bears-bd9aea200bd#.2zcd3vsf2 


Grizzly bears? Really? You picked her to be Education Secretary? Jesus Trump.

I'm going to say "what about grizzly bears" to random questions from now on. Do you think it will rain? "What about grizzly bears?"


Recapping The Betsy : it was a pretty grizzly spectacle where everyone noticed she could bearly understand the questions.


As if being hunted by rogue sharks wasn't enough.
Now has me paranoid about grizzly bear attacks on our schools!

Oh good lord. Bears. What's next? She sounds a little strange.
The only people with weapons near or in a school should be a security guard who is trained and not vulnerable to fears and panic.
It has been done for decades .

Teachers or students should never have guns in schools. It's just insane.

In Las Vegas in 1980 my daughter and kids in our neighborhood were bused to a school in north Las Vegas. It was a sketchy area so there were guards and gates .
But in an average school in an average neighborhood? Hell no.

We have a real problem with Geese in our school, I guess I should start carrying!
