In Texas they have to have psych testing first (similar to LEO), firearms and law enforcement training before they can be a School Marshal.The concept is good....but as President Trump stated, "it would require teachers that are highly trained with firearms".... The bozo that shot the ceiling is either not trained or a "ringer" as the Teachers Union is dead set against arming teachers period.
Exactly. Commonly done with the weapon pointed at the berm on a range. Ceiling in a classroom? Bad idea.Dry firing is part of clearing in more than one league I've shot in.
None of them involved the ceiling, though...
I love that clip. I show it in my intro classes to make the point that no one is above the rules. No one. Including me.
Your state can enact whatever it wants, my state has a robust school marshal program, and it’s expanding quickly.There are better, cheaper, far more effective solutions.
The goal is not armed teachers, the goal is stopping active shooters. There are better ways to do that, and one of the big reasons to use another method is the simple reality that there is enormous political fallout and resistance to arming teachers.
And that doesn't even take into account idiots like the example in this article.
Idiot. Once it is holstered, do not touch it. Unless needed.
