A student who was in the Georgia high school where a teacher opened fire in a classroom called out the National Rifle Association for backing plans that would arm teachers.
"My favorite teacher at Dalton high school just blockaded his door and proceeded to shoot," the student, identified as Chondi on Twitter, wrote. "We had to run out The back of the school in the rain. Students were being trampled and screaming."
"I dare you to tell me arming teachers will make us safe," she concluded in the tweet that tagged the NRA.

The call to arm teachers in the wake of the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida on Valentine's Day has been taken up by both the NRA and President Donald Trump.
The teacher, identified as 53-year-old Jesse Randall Davidson, taught social studies and was an announcer for the school's football team. He was taken into custody soon after the incident, and Dalton Police said no children were hurt or in danger.
