    Texas school employee shot in gun safety class

    In a district-sponsored workshop on arming school, an employee is accidentally wounded

    By Natasha Lennard

    A Texas public school employee was accidentally shot and wounded during a district-sponsored handgun safety class. According to local news sources KLTV and the Tyler Morning Telegraph, maintenance worker Glenn Geddie was accidentally shot after a training session aimed toward arming employees.

    A statement from the district superintendent read:

    At the conclusion of the CHL training on February 27, 2013, one certified person stayed for private instruction with the instructor and had a mechanical malfunction with his weapon. With the assistance of the instructor, the malfunction was addressed, but the gun misfired and the bullet ricocheted coming back to strike the VISD employee in the left leg. The VISD employee was attended to at the scene and transferred to Tyler for further treatment. The injury is not life threatening or disabling. Because of privacy and security issues we cannot make any further statement.

    The accident will not affect the district’s decision, in light of the Sandy Hook massacre and other school shootings, to arm employees. Since the Connecticut shooting, a number of school districts nationwide have moved to arm teachers and school employees either by pushing for a legislation shifts on concealed weapons in schools, or, as in one Michigan township, by training school employees as volunteer reserve police officers, enabling them to carry concealed arms.
