Concealed Carry Training for OK Teachers
Teachers in an Oklahoma school district will soon be certified and trained in concealed carry.
Wilson Public Schools Superintendent Eric Smith has made an executive decision to allow 5 teachers to train with their own weapons and carry them concealed during school days,
The Superintendent along with the High School Principal, AG Instructor, Technology Director, and the Elementary Principal have all volunteered to take the three 21 hour classes required to carry their concealed weapon on their person during the school days. The beginning of the instruction will include unarmed security procedures, rules, and regulations.
The superintendent, both principals of the elementary and high school, and two teachers will be training in three phases for a total of 60 hours of concealed carry classes on and off the range before they will begin carrying at the schools. The training will be funded by the schools, and the staff will use their own firearms.
“A school shooting situation, even in a small town like Wilson, it is over when the police department arrives,” High School Principal Gary Labeth said. “A tactical team would take 15 minutes coming out of Ardmore. It’s just another level of protection.”
