Dean said yesterday she hadn’t heard of Salem’s ban, but praised the town for deciding to repeal the measure.
“I think Salem is doing the right thing to comply with the law — it is unfortunate they didn’t understand it to begin with,” she said. “You have to follow the law. If you don’t like the law, you change the law.”
Dean said a tragedy such as what happened in Connecticut may have been prevented if teachers and school administrators had been allowed to carry firearms and been properly trained, calling America’s schools “anti-safe danger zones.”
“We must give our teachers and administrators the self-defense tools they need to do their job,” she said.
