  David Berliner issued the following call for a national teachers’ strike on May 1.' Teachers are now first responders, trained to protect their students if a shooter gets in the building. Some have given their lives . They can consult with Giffords and Kelly, and others who have suffered. If they have not received assurance that their legislation for sanity in gun ownership will be acted on soon, they need to walk out of our schools. It would be May Day, when workers should exert their strength.…“Our country’s legislators, and the voters who send them to make our laws, can then choose: Teachers and (most) parents for sane gun laws, or, the NRA that provides our legislators money to avoid making the laws that could reduce the carnage we see too frequently.'
