MEDFORD, Ore. — Oregon State Representative Dennis Richardson spoke to CNN on Monday morning, proposing school faculty members carry guns.
Representative Richardson said in the interview that it is not realistic to have a police officer on every campus and that having school faculty armed may be the next best option.
“People who are trained and will get continuing training in the use of fire arms, have them be armed, on campus and when the first shot is fired, they respond appropriately,” Richardson explained.
Representative Richardson says in many cases the only armed person during a school shooting is the gunman and that needs to change.
