G is for Gun:

The Arming Of Teachers In America

Before 2012, the idea of a movement to arm teachers as a security measure in American public schools would likely have been beyond the scope of belief for most people. Then came Sandy Hook.


Motivated by the logic of NRA Executive Vice President Wayne La Pierre – “the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun” – over thirty states have proposed legislation that would allow teachers and other school employees to carry guns.


G is for Gun: The Arming of Teachers in America explores this complex and controversial topic and many of the larger social issues to which it is connected. The filmmakers, Julie Akeret and Kate Way, travel to Ohio, a traditional bellwether state where a growing movement to arm teachers is met with a growing opposition. The struggles and debates playing out in Ohio communities reflect conversations that are happening around the country regarding the intersection between education and the Second Amendment.
