Armed Officer Disarms Teen Shooter


An armed officer in Atlanta, Ga., disarmed a student at a middle school Thursday, according to the Associated Press.

The student injured just one student in the shooting, which occurred in the early afternoon.

The armed resource officer who took the gun away was off-duty and at the school, but police didn’t release details on him or whether he is regularly at Price. Since 20 children and six adults were shot to death at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut in December, calls for armed officers in every school have resonated across the country.

As reported in the Washington Free Beacon, the NRA recently called for armed guards in all schools and many schools have embraced the change.
