Calling it a compromise between extremes, Attorney General Tom Horne on Wednesday proposed training and arming the principal or other top administrator at every public school.
Horne said he could not provide details on exactly what the training would involve or how much time would be appropriate. But Horne said he envisions more than just teaching someone how to shoot accurately.
"There would be simulations in how to exercise good judgment and when to shoot and when not to shoot when there's a rampage going on in your school,'' he said.
Horne said he's convinced that training, conducted with a computer screen and fake electronic gun, is sufficient to ensure student safety.
