Blackburn also said the incident served as a potentially ominous warning in the aftermath of the shooting at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School, in Parkland, Florida, with the president — among others — arguing that arming teachers would serve as a powerful remedy to such massacres.

“If this proves anything, it proves that when a situation is that tense and you’ve got officers trained to shoot first, and have been told by the law to shoot first if you’re remotely threatened, they’re going to feel threatened when they see a teacher with a gun,” Blackburn said.

“When you have officers who are ready to use lethal force they’re going to use it.”

I would counter that is precisely why teachers SHOULD be armed, because they are at the scene from the time it started, and have a better understanding of events first hand. teachers are not showing up after the fact and shooting anyone with a firearm that moves.

And officers should be informed that teachers are armed.

I hope they don't charge Garcia for possession of a firearm since he just got out of prison.
