Instead of putting his faith in imaginary magic force-fields generated by “gun free zone” signs, a school principal in Ohio is utilizing the opportunity provided him to do something that would actually make a difference in protecting his students.
In Trenton Ohio, Edgewood High School Principal Russ Fussnecker has decided to take advantage of the law that gives him an ability to carry a firearm while at work. While Fussnecker is a gun owner, he still needs his Concealed Weapons permit and then undergo special training in order to be allowed to carry while on school grounds.
The special training will be provided by the Butler County Sheriff’s department and upon successful completion, Fussnecker will earn the certification necessary to carry a loaded firearm into public school buildings.
When asked about his reasoning, Fussnecker stately plainly the difficulties are in regards to outsiders with malicious intent entering his school:
“If someone wants to come into a school building and create havoc and cause harm, it is hard to stop them.”
And arming the principal?
“It will make the school safer.”
