Buckeye Firearms Association offers free training to teachers after Sandy Hook Elementary shootings

Buckeye Firearms Association offers free training to teachers after Sandy Hook Elementary shootings

CLEVELAND, Ohio In response to the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., the Buckeye Firearms Association has announced it will provide teachers with free firearms training.

The pro-gun advocacy organization said it would pay all expenses, including tuition, ammunition and lodging (estimated at $1,000 each) for 24 teachers to get comprehensive three-day training at Tactical Defense Institute in West Union, Ohio. If there is more demand, the Armed Teacher Pilot Program will be expanded to more sites.

The Buckeye Firearms Foundation will pay for the training.

Buckeye Firearms representative Jim Reese said during a broadcast of the Sound of Ideas on WCPN FM/90.3 Thursday: "We need to examine how we enhance the safety of our children in that environment. The first responder in a situation such as what we had in that school has got to be the teachers. You've got to educate the teacher, and when you look at the folks who stop these things while they're in progress, it typically is someone else who is armed."

2. so teachers have to learn how to be snipers AND pilots?

 

that seems like a lot to put on the plates of people making so little each year.
