Michael Eaton, Chief of Safety and Security for Denver Public Schools, gives testimony in opposition to a bill which would allow Colorado public school teachers to carry concealed firearms during class, during a hearing at the Capitol, in Denver, Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2014. The Republican proposal has been made before without success, but the suggestion has additional relevance after last year's Arapahoe High School shootings, in which a student targeted a teacher.
