Colorado Teachers Train With Guns To Protect Students

posted on June 27, 2017

More than a dozen teachers and school staff members from all over Colorado convened at a shooting range outside Denver for three days for advanced firearms and tactical training. The curriculum that they used was designed specifically for use inside schools.

“I don’t have any children of my own,” teacher Kelly Blake said of her reasons for attending the session, “so these students are my children.”

Faculty/Administrator Safety Training & Emergency Response (FASTER), the group that provided the training, was organized in response to the mass murder of elementary school children in Newtown, Conn. The pro-Second Amendment organization Coloradans for Civil Liberties funded scholarships allowing the school employees to attend.
