Ohio gun group to offer firearms training to teachers12/26/2012
Following the tragic shooting in Newtown, Conn., and calls for teachers to be armed in order to better be able to fight back against a gunman, a gun group in Ohio is launching a test program to train teachers how to use firearms. The Buckeye Firearms Association created the 3-day training program called the Armed Teacher Pilot Program and will pay expenses for training, lodging and ammunition for up to 24 applicants. Ken Hanson, the legal chairman of the association said the goal of the program is to "develop a standard Armed Teacher curriculum and make the training available to any teacher or school official."
