Thurber’s Thoughts

The Buckeye Firearms Association (BFA) has launched a pilot program to provide firearm training to teachers free of charge.

Ken Hanson, BFA’s Legal Chair, announced the program at a town hall meeting last night in Columbus where gun control issues were being debated.

“Teachers and school board members have been asking us for years about training to prepare for an incident like Sandy Hook,” Hanson said. “So our educational Foundation will sponsor an Armed Teacher Pilot Program for a comprehensive 3-day training class at Tactical Defense Institute in West Union, Ohio. Based on the response to this pilot program, we will roll out classes to other training facilities.”

According to their website, The first class will instruct 24 teachers. All expenses, including class tuition, ammunition, and lodging (expected to total about $1,000 each), will be paid by Buckeye Firearms Foundation and outside donations. Teachers can sign uphere. They plan to keep the identity of participants “strictly confidential.”
