Training Texas School Employees to be Armed
An effort intended to stop a shooter at a public school got a hearing Tuesday at the Texas Capitol. It’s a measure that would train school employees in gun use.
“It’s our assessment that there are not enough police officers in the State of Texas to protect 4.5 million children at 9,239 different school sites. Tragically, that’s the case. If you look at the case studies, there’s not enough time, there’s not enough police officers to get there," said McCraw, who envisions a 16-hour training course on top of the training received by Texas Concealed Handgun License holders.
The training would come from CHL instructors who get their training from DPS.
