Documentary On Arming Teachers To Be Screened In Northampton

May 22, 2018

After the high school shooting in Florida in mid-February, President Trump suggested arming teachers as added security against such events, but the idea was largely rejected. A new documentary that will be screened tonight in Northampton, Massachusetts says in some school districts teachers are carrying guns, and in some cases so too are school bus drivers, custodians and other staff members. Kate Way, the co-producer and co-director of the film “G Is For Guns", spoke with WAMC's Brian Shields.

The film will be screened at 6 p.m. at the Academy of Music, followed by a panel discussion.
