ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The Albuquerque Teacher's Federation threw its support behind protesting students on Friday.


The union went as far as to post a fiery poem directed at President Donald Trump and gun supports, making it clear they do not want teachers to be armed.

The poem, written by elementary school teacher Federico Beckmann, is called "Ballots Not Bullets," and it took on quite a pointed stance in the ongoing debate over gun control.
