..Arizona High School teacher instructs kids on handgun shooting and gun safety...
Oh my...! Think of the children...!
I wish my kids' school did that. In fact... I might have to ask them about starting such a thing!

One loves to possess arms, though they hope never to have occasion for them. Thomas Jefferson to George Washington, 1796.
If someone has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun. - Dalai Lama (Seattle Times, 05-15-2001).
Find businesses that are pro gun and those that aren't. Support Friend or Foe by using it!
I love Arizona. This High school is right up the road from where I live.
I wasn't able to get a rifke team setup while I qas in high school, but I did get an archery team started, and it's still getring more applicants each year.
You could try finding a pro gun teacher at your school and setting up an after school club. Just classroom stuff at first, but eventually they will get used to the idea. Patience...

Does AZ have a law stating you can't carry into any place where a school function is being held?
If so, it sounds like this teacher created a legal paradox for gun owners lol
In Michigan I was OCing in the state capitol building that has hundreds of school tours every week. The capitol police tried to use that on me and it didn't fly. We have similar wording in our CPL statute and this has been discussed ad naseum. The topic was a school baseball game played in a public park. Two arguments, shool function and sports stadium. Not one arrest has been made over this in Michigan. I suspect the same argument could be made in TN.

It's in Opinions Part 2 in regards to 39-17-1309
Tenn. Code Ann. § 39-17-1309 prohibits handgun carry permit holders from
possessing firearms in public parks during times when the athletic fields or other recreational
facilities are actually being used by schools.
In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?
Si vis pacem, para bellum.
This is AZ, no such law exists. In fact one of the exemptions for having a firearm on school property...
A. A person commits misconduct involving weapons by knowingly:
12. Possessing a deadly weapon on school grounds;
G. Subsection A, paragraph 3 of this section shall not apply to a weapon described in section 13-3101, subsection A, paragraph 8, subdivision (a), item (v), if such weapon is possessed for the purposes of preparing for, conducting or participating in lawful exhibitions, demonstrations, contests or athletic events involving the use of such weapon. Subsection A, paragraph 12 of this section shall not apply to a weapon if such weapon is possessed for the purposes of preparing for, conducting or participating in hunter or firearm safety courses.
Evidently not everyone is supportive of the field trip ... instead of being positive about it, she has to get snarky about intentions that are not evident in the report. Way to go quashing the kids.The law and public safety class at the central JTED campus teaches gun safety through demonstrations and role-playing with plastic, nonfunctioning guns, said Kathy Rau, the program manager for the law and public safety program.
She said going to the shooting range doesn't improve a student's chances of getting a job in law enforcement.
"Most law enforcement firearm instructors want recruits that don't know how to shoot because they don't want those bad habits," Rau said.
Kudos to the teacher!
