Sheriff Joe Arpaio has a special weapon against school shootings: action movie star Steven Seagal.

The Associated Press reports that the Maricopa County Sheriff will host a training session for volunteers to help them learn how to handle school shootings.

The training will take place this Saturday in Fountain Hills, Ariz. and Seagal will be one of the instructors leading the drills, according to the AP.

The Arizona Republic's EJ Montini is skeptical of Arpaio's motives and also notes that, since the sheriff's posse of volunteers are now on the job guarding schools, shouldn't they have already gotten training?

"It’s about publicity, as it always is when Arpaio is involved," Montini writes.

The Phoenix New Times hopes Seagal will break out some of the moves he implemented in 1997's "Fire Down Below."
