I'm meeting with President @realDonaldTrump this week to discuss how we can make schools safer & this morning I joined @FaceTheNation to share what we've implemented here in Arkansas to keep our students safe.https://t.co/J6DDQj6KR8— Asa Hutchinson (@AsaforAR) February 25, 2018
Hutchinson, however, said there needs to be "flexibility" when it comes to addressing the issue of arming teachers in schools.
"Let me emphasize, there has to be some flexibility here. I've always said that teachers should teach and others should protect," said Hutchinson.
"There are some teachers who, whenever they're looking at options and they've got the training and they've got the temperament and they've, they've done what's necessary," he added. "And if they want to be able to have a protection and be armed with that training I think that's a prerogative that they should have as well."
And speaking of guns, you should like a video from writer Jason Taylor of an AR-15, a gun available for instant
LaPierre made a passing reference to armed guards in schools, referring to "the rare exception of law enforcement officers or trained security personnel." As for arming teachers, something President Donald Trump has shown a keen interest in, LaPierre said nothing.
