Questions about the role of firearms in school safety have been part of public discourse for many people in the United States-- and in the small communities of the Four Corners. KSJD's Austin Cope spoke with Dolores County RE-2J superintendent Bruce Hankins about his district's approach to firearms in schools.

Austin Cope is a former Morning Edition host for KSJD and now produces work on a freelance basis for the station. He grew up in Cortez and hosted a show on KSJD when he was 10 years old. After graduating from Montezuma-Cortez High School in 2010, he lived in Belgium, Ohio, Spain, northern Wyoming, and Himachal Pradesh, India before returning to the Cortez area. He has a degree in Politics from Oberlin College in Ohio.
