Teachers in Salt Lake City learn to shoot so they can protect their classes with guns. Although turnout was sparse, the pupils were enthusiastic. They feel having a gun in the classroom will help them should a threat arise.
“We stick our heads in the sand when it comes to ability to protect ourselves,” gun trainer Clark Aposhian told The Early Show correspondent Hattie Kauffman.
Holes in student safety were brought to the forefront after three fatal school shootings in the past few weeks. The deadliest was at the one-room Amish school house in Pennsylvania, where five school girls were killed.
The teachers in Aposhian’s class are training to get licensed to carry a gun to school.
