SEBASTIAN GORKA: There's an issue with this question of arming teachers, especially if they're vets. You don't have to be a tier one operator or a classified marksman. If there's one person in the building who's simply laying down fire in the direction of the perpetrator --

GERALDO RIVERA: I think it's a terrible idea. It's a terrible idea.

GORKA: It's much, much harder to kill people.

RIVERA: I picture my old English teacher taking a weapon out.

GORKA: In San Bernardino, if one person had been armed, if one person had been armed in San Bernardino, we might not have had 14 people killed.

SEAN HANNITY (HOST): But there were -- the whole point, Dr. Gorka, is you need guards on every floor. You need the perimeter secure, you need a full threat assessment, security assessment. If we do that for every school, and we have the manpower, and they're on the floor, they're in the building. That's where they should be.

GORKA: Right. Totally agreed. Let's neutralize that threat.
