Gun training idea draws hundreds of Ohio educators
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A gun rights group says more than 650 Ohio educators have expressed interest in a firearms training program announced after 20 children and six educators were killed at a Connecticut school.
The Buckeye Firearms Association was accepting applications for 24 spots in a free, 3-day class to train teachers to use firearms. It said costs for the Armed Teacher Training Program would be covered by its educational foundation and outside donations.
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has said he would support allowing trained school officials access to a gun during classes if he were a school board member, but also said such decisions should be up to each district.
