FL Sheriff: 'Game Changer' If Some Teachers Trained to Carry Guns


Following the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida, a sheriff in Ohio is offering free gun training to teachers.

Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones wrote on Twitter on Sunday that he will offer a concealed and a carry class, along with training on school shootings.

On "Fox & Friends" on Tuesday, Jones revealed that he's received an overwhelming response, with hundreds of teachers expressing interest in the training.

"In Ohio, you can carry a concealed carry in the schools if the school board allows you to do that," Jones said. "We're starting the training next week. We're going to have 50 to a class, and we're leading by example."

He said he's also received calls from around the country from people inquiring about these classes and how they can implement a similar program in their communities.

Jones explained that Congress cannot be relied upon to solve this problem, so it's up to law enforcement and citizens to take action.

"We can't be like ostriches and have our heads in the sand. We've got to protect the kids, period."
