Thinking more had to be done to protect their children, a number of teachers and school staff members around Ohio have been signing up for a variety of gun training courses offered at a discount or for free.

    Good! We need to encourage teachers to get firearms training and encourage legislators to make it legal for teachers to carry a concealed handgun in school to protect children. We also need make firearms safety training a mandatory class in public schools.
