Coach Aaron Feis paid the ultimate price last Wednesday when he shielded students from spraying bullets last week in Florida. Now, a JROTC member is calling for teachers to arm themselves in the wake of the deadly mass shooting that claimed 17 young lives last week.

Colton Haab, who is a high school junior at Marjory Stoneman High School and second lieutenant in the school's JRTOC program, told Fox News that having armed teachers on campus would be a "big beneficial factor into school safety."

"If coach Feis had had his firearm in school that day, I believe that he could have most likely stopped the threat," Haab told Fox News on Saturday morning.

On Tuesday's episode of "Pat Gray Unleashed," Pat argued arming teachers is the best way to combat mass shootings that are largely carried out in gun-free zones while acknowledging the idea isn't always the most popular with progressives.
