Video: Firearms Instructor Clark Aposhian Defends Training Teachers to use Guns

| by Michael Allen

Utah gun trainer Clark Aposhian, who is offering free gun seminars to teachers, told CNN on Friday that guns should be available in classrooms just like fire extinguishers and first aid kits (video below).

Aposhian said on CNN’s 'Starting Point': “We’re gonna give folks like Kasey another option rather than jumping in front of a bullet. It’s why we put fire extinguishers and medical kits in classrooms.”

Another guest on the show, teacher Kasey Hansen, said she did not own a gun, never brought one into a school and wouldn’t feel comfortable without more training, reports

Aposhian stood by his claim that the mass proliferation of guns will lead to a safer society.
