Concealed Carry Training For Teachers, Front Sight's New Mission

Concealed carry training is a subject which very few Americans have any real idea of. Front Sight has an idea of it, and an idea for it. Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, the nation's leader in firearms training has, for years, been the official name in any field of firearms training. Whether shotgun training, rifle training, handgun training, submachine gun training or unarmed self defense training, any student of any level of expertise has been able to attend Front Sight and increase his or her skill and ability to an entirely new level. Newcomers have become novices, novices have moved to the intermediate level and experts have become masters, all from Dr. Ignatius Piazza, Front Sight's founder and director, Dr. Ignatius Piazza's institute delivers gun training to more students every year than all other shooting schools in America combined. He and Front Sight now have a new idea for America: arm our teachers.

This means more than just giving teachers 9mm or revolvers, it means getting them real, effective, world-class firearms training. In particular, the teachers should receive concealed carry training, a training which not only instructs its students in how to carry a concealed weapon and how to draw it quickly, but also when to draw such a weapon and when lethal force is acceptable (here's a hint – almost never, and technically any circumstance can be refuted). More than all that, concealed carry training, especially training from Front Sight instructs students (teachers in this case) what to look for in a potential target, what potential trouble sources look like – how anti-socials who may draw on a classroom of students can be identified, and other such skills.

Dr. Ignatius Piazza and Front Sight have made it their mission to deliver firearms training to Americans for years, now they are turning their sights upon teachers; training and arming teachers with concealed carry training is the only way to prevent school shootings and terrible atrocities like the ones we've seen in Little Rock and Virginia Tech.
