Security Expert Responds to Arizona Gun Bill

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Two days ago Arizona  proposed a bill to allow teachers and administrators to carry weapons to defend students. While the details of this bill are extensive, the initial proposal caught the attention of security expert James Vierra, CEO of The Kingdom Group, a global risk management firm.


"My company has been providing active shooter teams on the campus of a major fortune company for almost six months," said Vierra. "With approximately 3,500 employees on six different campuses, we have developed a program that can be easily implemented for schools."

Andrew F. Morrill, President of the Arizona Education Association, does not believe this bill is right for schools.

"Any training that these bills are proposing that would turn teachers or parent volunteers or administrators into body guards falls so far short of real police training," said Morrill.

Vierra believes The Kingdom Group's program will prove more effective than simply teachers carrying guns. The Kingdom Group's program not only utilizes trained armed professionals, but also unarmed personnel, thus proving to be both proactive and reactive.
