Texas Lt. Gov Calls For Specified Gun Carriers In Schools
AUSTIN, TX--Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst called Friday for state-funded, specialized firearms training for teachers and administrators to guard against school shootings.
Dewhurts proposed that school districts would be able to nominate who they wanted to carry firearms on their campuses.
Although, the nominated gun carriers would go through more extensive gun training than that of current concealed weapon classes, such as how to react in an active shooter situation.
The Lt. Gov. said the current concealed weapon classes are not sufficient and they "don't teach how to respond emotionally and technically" to a potentially chaotic situation where young lives could be at stake.
No other details have been stated, but he said the amount of state funding would depend on how many schools wanted to participate.
