US gun crime: American teachers carrying guns in the classroom

A number of schools in the US are opting to train staff to carry a concealed weapon in the classroom.

US President Trump has given his support, and US Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos has said she's considering allowing schools to use federal funds to purchase guns.
