On account of the tweet made by Donald Trump about the Florida school shooting quoting, “History shows that a school shooting lasts, on average, 3 minutes. It takes police & first responders approximately 5 to 8 minutes to get to site of crime. Highly trained, gun adept, teachers/coaches would solve the problem instantly, before police arrive. GREAT DETERRENT!” of course there was a numerous backlash and teachers from various states standing against the idea of the President making the scene more barbaric and violent.

It’s already a very impulsive and delicate matter that has been circulating throughout various platforms on social media. Teachers and parents have come forward and shared their thoughts on how arming faculties is not the solution here. Well, one particular teacher named, Philip Clarke tweeted about his view on the subject and you gotta see how he twisted this serious issue on a funny note but with a true cause and reason.
Who knew Chemistry teachers could be this fun?
As a teacher, I knocked myself out headbutting ceiling pretending to be a particle, star-jumping off a desk.
I've set my arm on fire when lit ethanol trickled down sleeve, from my hand.
I've burnt my ear listening if gas was coming out of a bunsen.
Please don't give me a gun.

People loved his humor and didn’t take long to share their bits and started retweeting.
Your classes sound amazing.

Well, obviously he needed something to freshen up his history lessons.
One of our History masters carried a hip-flask of scotch whiskey. He was generally looped by lunchtime. His lectures were terrific; his aim – probably less so.
