Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst called Friday for state-funded, specialized firearms training for teachers and administrators. Schooldistricts would decide who would carry weapons but not be required to participate, and training would include how to react during a shooting.
Residents in a Dayton, Ohio, suburb crowded into a school meeting this week to talk about whether staff members and teachers should be armed. Reaction was mixed, according to The Dayton Daily News.
