Shots were fired during the armed teachers debate on Tuesday March 20 in the small gym. The debate, held during lunch, was between Mr. Jonathan Mitchell supporting teachers carrying concealed weapons on campus, and Mr. Robert Crosby in the opposition.

“It brought to perspective the idea of safety behind guns, but also the logical ramifications they bring as well.” stated Mitchell

Students were encouraged throughout the debate to question and support their opinion over the issue as the teachers’ points were brought to light.

“I think it went very well.” Mr. Crosby stated,.. “There was a good exchange of information on the topic while allowing the students to get multiple points of view on the issue at hand.”
