Teachers in Colorado are being issued new classroom equipment.
On Tuesday, 17 teachers, staff and administrators from schools across Colorado gathered to start three days of gun and medical training…
…Among the trainers are officers who responded to the 2012 Aurora theater shooting and the 2013 Arapahoe High School shooting…
…The trainees have concealed carry permits and are designated by their school districts or boards to act as volunteer security personnel in an emergency.
“There’s been a provision in the law for years that allows this but it’s the first time we’ve taken it this far,” said Laura Carno, founder of Coloradans for Civil Liberties, an organization that arranged for the training. “Many people aren’t aware that is it legal.”
The armed personnel will make Colorado schools safer. Gunmen always pick so-called “gun free zones” to carry out their violence, and often only stop once someone with a gun eventually arrives all too late.
