An Ohio sheriff who offered free firearms training to 50 teachers was forced to cap his offer at 300, after a flood of local school employees signed up in the wake of a Florida high school shooting that left 17 people dead.
“We put it online, we thought we’d get 20 school teachers maybe. Within 20 minutes we had 40. Within an hour we had 100. Within four hours we had 200. By the next morning, at 300, we cut it off,” Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones said on “Fox & Friends.”
Hey, I’m all for arming teachers but I think it needs to go a little deeper than giving them a few hours of training before turning them loose, particularly if they’re not familiar with firearms.
If you think the gun control push is bad now, wait for the shitstorm when a teacher shoots a student by accident.
