With mass shootings becoming a growing issue in the U.S., many are left wondering how such tragedies could be prevented, especially in schools. While some lawmakers argue in favor of legislative solutions, others support more direct and immediate actions.

Following the Santa Fe school shooting earlier this year, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott set out to ensure the government took proper precautions. The governor welcomed ideas from different political camps as well as law enforcement and teaching professionals.

“One thing that’s been offered is that (the government) should allow employees of the school to have guns – to carry guns for self-defense, which I support,” said Mike Cox, owner and operator of firearm training company Driftwood LTC.

Exploring how such endeavors could take shape, Cox proposes changing local policy for permitting guns in schools to hiring private security to directing local law enforcement.
