With the national debate still tense on what to do to eliminate any more school shootings and threats Upper Arlington Police Chief Tracy Hahn and Fire Chief Lyn Nofziger answered questions from concerned parents.

One thing is for sure, teachers and police officials present agree arming teachers with guns is not a smart solution and can lead to other unforeseen consequences. However, Dean Rieck, who is the executive director of Buckeye Firearms Association, advocates that this can be a reasonable solution.
