Police aren’t saying why a North Georgia teacher allegedly brought a handgun to school and fired it out a classroom window, but a police representative says apparently the teacher didn’t intend to harm any students. Jesse Randal Davidson teaches social studies at Dalton High, and the principal, Steve Bartoo, describes Davidson as an “excellent teacher.”
He says he’d be surprised “with any of our teachers” if an incident like today’s happens.
“Our teachers care about our kids. They love our kids, they take care of our kids, and it's certainly shocking to any principal if one of their staff members took a gun out in a classroom and fired it.”
The incident is sparking debate about President Trump’s proposal that some teachers start carrying concealed weapons, to defend students against school shooters.
