BOSTON (CBS) – The suggestion to arm schoolteachers with weapons after the deadly school shooting in Florida “doesn’t make any sense,” said Ed Davis, a Security Analyst for WBZ-TV and the former Commissioner of the Boston Police Department.
“I’ve been involved in shooting incidents. I’ve supervised men and women who have had to use their weapon in defense of their lives, and this idea that if we put more guns out there, we’re going to be safer, is really borne of inexperience,” Davis said Thursday. “Anybody who’s been in the military or in policing, knows that when bullets start to fly, the last thing you need is more guns out there. The amount of friendly fire that occurs in the military, the blue-on-blue situations and the police, you multiply that by 100 times if you give schoolteachers weapons. It just doesn’t make any sense.”
