Anti-Gun Activist: Cops Miss Sometimes, So Let’s Disarm Teachers

posted on June 28, 2017

We reported yesterday on teachers and school staff in Colorado who are receiving firearms training in order to keep their students safe. And predictably, anti-gun organizations in the state have something to say about that.

“In armed confrontations, trained law enforcement hit their target only 20 percent of the time,” Eileen McCarron of Ceasefire Colorado told The Denver Post. “In a crowded classroom, what happens to the remaining 80 percent of the bullets? And how do we expect a nervous, far less-trained individual to perform anything but worse?”

We’re just spitballing here, but teachers who specifically train for this type of scenario aren’t likely to fire indiscriminately into a group of students—and wouldn’t we rather they had a fighting chance in the case of a real emergency? As is typical of the anti-gun set, McCarron completely ignores the deterrent effect of armed school employees and prefers to leave law-abiding citizens helpless against remorseless killers.
