Twin Falls reacts to a report that Garden Valley School District has purchased firearms and trained a handful of staff to protect against possible worst case scenarios.

According to the Associated Press, Garden Valley School District has purchased firearms and trained a handful of staff to protect against what they are calling "possible worst case scenarios."

School District officials say it takes law enforcement 45 minutes to reach the one school in the district, prompting the school board to approve the firearms purchase this month.

School officials declined to say how many firearms they bought and what type.

Today on the Morning Show we opened up the phone lines on the topic, and the Magic Valley had a lot to say about it. Watch the video above from KEZJ's YouTube Channel to hear actual listener phone calls.
