G is for Gun Film Screening
November 12 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
TCU College of Education and the Center for Public Education will host a panel discussion and screening of the documentary film G is for Gun: The Arming of Teachers in America. This event is free and open to the public.
G is for Gun is a thirty-minute documentary film exploring the highly controversial trend of armed faculty and staff in K-12 schools. Only five years ago this practice was practically unheard of, but since the Sandy Hook massacre in 2012, it has spread to as many as a dozen states. Often without public knowledge, there are teachers, administrators, custodians, nurses, and bus drivers carrying guns in America’s schools. G is for Gun documents a growing program in Ohio that is training school staff to respond to active shooter situations with guns, and follows the story of one Ohio community divided over arming its teachers.
