Guns Discussion and School Safety

School safety was one of the focus points of the discussion about guns hosted by The Foothill Arts Resources and Media group-FARM. One hundred community members attended Guns: A Community Dialogue which featured six panelists with as many viewpoints about guns and their place in the community.
Moderator, Superior Court Judge Tom Anderson, asked the group whether allowing teachers to carry guns would increase school safety. California law does not allow teachers to carry guns. The panel was not short on opinions. Community member, George Rebane , supports allowing  teachers to carry guns.
