Front Sight Firearms Training Institute is America’s leader in gun training. Front Sight delivers gun training to more students annually than all other shooting schools in America combined. Front Sight has, for years, been the hallmark and beacon for safe, effective gun use through excellent, world-class gun training. Front Sight has trained tens of thousands of students in responsible gun use, and now the Las Vegas-based firearms training facility has turned its aim to a new target: teachers.
As featured in an article in Reform America, in order to stem the violence in schools and to ensure that school shootings become a thing of the past, Front Sight is offering free firearms training to any school administrator, teacher, or full time staff member designated as school Safety Monitors. Front Sight will accept for training up to three staff members from each school, college or university. Applicants must submit a letter requesting training on school letterhead signed by the top school district official and designating the applicant as the school's Safety Monitor.
“My offer is not a new idea," says Ignatius Piazza in the article for Reform America. “In the early 70's, Israel was faced with much greater problems of armed terrorist attacks on schools. The cry for more gun control was heard then too, but Israel very carefully analyzed all possible options before adopting the proactive position of arming and training their teachers. School shootings stopped and terrorists looked for easier targets.” He maintains that gun control never has and never will stop criminals and madmen from carrying out acts of gun violence.
“The brazen attacks in school after school during the last decade indicate criminals have concluded that 'Gun-Free-School-Zone' actually means 'Government Certified, Helpless and Unarmed Victim Zone.’” Clearly Dr. Ignatius Piazza is intent upon getting training into the hands of teachers, regardless of anything and everything. He is determined to safeguard America and will have his way, given time.
