Colorado Democrats have been pushing stronger gun control laws and the last thing they want is to see teachers and school faculty members carry concealed weapons to protect students, but a law was passed to allow it to happen.

This fall, some Colorado teachers will return to school armed with knowledge—and guns.
Laura Carno, author of “Government Ruins Nearly Everything: Reclaiming Social Issues from Uncivil Servants,” is bringing advanced firearms training to school teachers.
“Can government stop school shooting[s]? The answer is no … How do we as a community keep our kids safer if we say government is not the right place to fix that problem?” Carno told The Daily Signal in a phone interview.

The vast majority of mass shootings, including school shootings take place at gun-free zones, not gun-friendly zones. The people who plan and carry out these mass shootings don’t want to face to opposition until after they accomplish their carnage, which is why they target gun-free zones instead of gun friendly zones.
