Letter: Allow teachers to carry guns?

Allow teachers to carry guns?

Perhaps a workable plan for arming teachers in the schools could be for the Legislature, or interested counties, to create the position of Special Deputy for School Safety. Interested teachers could apply for this additional duty. Each local Sheriff or Police Chief could be involved in the approval of applicants.

Teachers selected for the program could be provided intense special training designed by law enforcement professionals for this specific assignment. Thunder Ranch nearby in Lakeview could probably provide appropriate firearms training. Periodic training updates and recertification could be included in the program.
