Armed to immobilize 30 8, 8:10am

We already have a problem in our country with getting our police officers, who get extensive training in how and when to properly use their weapon, to use their weapon in the proper circumstances with skill and forethought. Our police are not taught to deescalate, but to "shoot if they feel threatened in any way."

How in the world do people expect teachers, with a minimal amount of firearms training and even less in deescalation, to do better?
