Texas teachers attend gun and active shooter training

DALLAS, FORT-WORTH (KTVT) -- Third grade math and science teacher Kim Raney is getting a lesson in protecting her students.

"It's scary sometimes. We do our best to have security at our schools, but you never know what's going to happen, and it's better to be prepared than not prepared", she said.

Tim Bulot owns Strategic Weapons Academy of Texas. He's a former Irving Police Officer, with nearly thirty years in law enforcement.

"This is the first time I've done anything like this.. normally it's police officers, SWAT, and overseas contractors is who we train here", he stated.

Tim says SWAT and police officers volunteered their time and expertise teaching firearms training, and active shooter protocol.

"I wanted to bring teachers and law enforcement together into our world, because now, we're not the first ones there on these active shooters. They are", he added.
