Should teachers and school administrators be armed?
In the wake of what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the question of allowing teachers and school administrators to carry concealed weapons at school has been a hot topic of debate. But while the nation debates the issue, teachers and administrators in some states are taking action.
Federal law states that a person must have a concealed carry permit in order to be in possession of a firearm on school property. But states have different laws. Ohio’s laws also require a concealed carry permit PLUS the approval of the local school board in order to possess a weapon on school property.
