OH sheriff offers free gun classes to teachers after Florida school shooting

Butler County Sheriff Richard K. Jones is causing quite a stir with his response to the Florida shooting

A sheriff in OH has said that, in the aftermath of the latest school shooting, it's time to arm educators - and he's promising to do his part to train them.

A sheriff in OH is offering free concealed and carry classes to teachers in the wake of the recent school shooting in Florida.

Jones said in his tweet that there were a limited number of spots for the concealed carry classes.

The department said they received more than 50 emails in the span of 20 minutes. "The current way that we do things in the school system needs to be changed".

Jones posted a 2-minute video on the sheriff department's Facebook page on February 15, one day after the shooting that killed 17 people, demanding action.

Currently, almost every state bars guns in K-12 schools, according to the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, but eight states allow those permitted to carry a concealed weapon to have firearms on campus or don't have relevant laws on the subject.

"I decided that I'm going to do something", he said, disavowing politicians for arguing instead of finding a solution.

Some praised Jones' plan and announced they would take him up on his offer.

In a Tweet posted on Monday, Jones claimed that over 200 people have already applied for the gun training lessons. Jones added that they were "leading by example".

"Even if you hate guns, you need to know about guns if you're in the schools".

But others argued that teachers shouldn't have to worry about handling a weapon at school and Jones should find another way to help.

They responded to one at Madison Jr/Sr High School on February 29, 2016.

While the decision to allow teachers to carry firearms is a school board and county decision, Sheriff Jones wants the educators to be prepared anyway.
