Lee County is the first in Virginia to allow teachers to have guns in schools. The board confirmed tonight that teachers will be armed starting this fall, as soon as October.

The board says the process has been a year in the making and has been met with majority support from teachers and parents, who want to be prepared in the event of a mass shooting.



Many Lee County teachers have already volunteered to be considered for the role of being armed at their school. One former teacher tells News Channel 11 that most teachers would be willing to go face-to-face with a gunman if it meant saving one of their students.
School will pay for guns and training.

That's just about an hour from where I grew up.

Knowing the area well, I wouldn't be surprised if a majority of the teachers in that locale didn't volunteer for the option to be armed.
Your number one option for personal security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
When those fail, aim for center mass.
