More Gun Training For Colorado Teachers

posted on June 2, 2017

Coloradans for Civil Liberties (CCL) has partnered with the Independence Institute to bring firearms training to state teachers. Laura Carno, the co-founder of CCL, told the Colorado Springs Gazette that there is growing interest in the advanced training course that CCL will be providing.

"People want a fighting chance," said Carno, who was instrumental in the 2013 recall of anti-gun State Senate President John Morse. "One person is killed every 17 seconds in mass shootings. Even if you have a school resource officer in one hallway, if this happens in another hallway, how many 17 seconds is OK?"

CCL’s training is based off of Ohio’s FASTER (Faculty/Administrator Safety Training and Emergency Response) program, which has benefited some 900 teachers thus far. Colorado’s first three-day course will be held June 20-22 at a shooting range in northern Weld County.

Two dozen Colorado school districts currently have staff members that carry concealed firearms and are designated as school security officers.
