TDI family and friends...that means you if you're reading this.
We all recognize that the most effective way to stop a school killer quickly is to have one or more armed and trained teachers and staff in the building who are there when it happens. It takes at best several minutes for the 911 call to be made, the dispatch to occur, the officers to finally arrive at the scene, entry made and shooter located and taken out.
One of the school districts in Northern Ohio is currently discussing whether to allow armed and trained teachers in their schools. You can see the link to an article about that debate here:
Their local newspaper is running a poll asking people if they approve of arming teachers. The (in our opinion) uneducated poll voters are leading in the voting.
We have been asked by one of the teachers, who has gone through our FASTER program and is certified by TDI as passing the Ohio law enforcement handgun recertification class, to have the TDI family vote for allowing warned and trained teachers in their local schools. Please help. The link to the newspaper's home page is below. the poll is on the right hand side of the page.
Please take a moment and support our teachers who are willing to defend the kids. Voting must be done via computer.
