A video is being shared widely on social media, showing a substitute teacher at Arroyo Grande High School making a controversial statement about guns.
In the video, the woman is heard saying, “I’ve had students before who, if I had a gun on me, I might be really tempted to pull it out and shove it in their face.”
Students in the classroom can be seen and heard reacting after the statement was made.
A spokesperson for the Lucia Mar Unified School District told KSBY on Thursday that the school district and Arroyo Grande High School are aware of the video that is being shared on the internet.
The district says the video was taken in March of 2018.
School officials say they were notified about the statements, which were made by an unidentified substitute teacher, on the day that it happened. They say she was terminated from employment immediately.
It’s unclear why the video is just surfacing on social media.
A teacher at Arroyo Grande High School in California said if teachers were armed, she would be tempted to shove the gun in the faces of students.
Liberalism at its finest.
