This week is show #100. The topic is about arming teachers and training them to shoot back at killers who try to harm children and teachers/staff in schools, such as the recent Parkland school shooting. Barbara Baird talks to firearms trainer Michelle Cerino – one of our go-to experts on the show – about why and how she trains teachers in a special program in Ohio. Sponsored by Ruger.
Today’s “Tip Time” tip, from Gunsite Rangemaster Il Ling New, is “What to Bring to Your Firearms Class?”
