Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano believes America should mimic Israel’s gun policy and provide teachers with firearm training to protect students from mass shootings.

“The more important thing is, this is not a time in tragedy, to be re-debating the Second Amendment. I mean, the right to keep and bare arms bear arms is as natural a right as the right to the right to speak and the right to worship or the right not to worship,” Napolitano said on “Fox & Friends” Thursday.


“My suggestion is the Israeli model. Not all the teachers are armed but all the teachers — the culture’s different, I know that. All the teachers have been in the IDF, the Israeli Defense Forces. Every adult except for certain religious groups, spends time there. And in that time period they are trained,” Napolitano said. “And select teachers, quietly, not ostentatiously are armed and quietly trained. You can’t just carry a gun. You have to practice with it every week.”

“Guess how many of these school shootings they have in Israel? Zero,” he concluded.
