One Colorado school district is taking extra caution to ensure the safety of its students… by allowing “qualified teachers” to carry guns on campus.
Fox News reports:
“School officials in Hanover, a rural part of the state outside Colorado Springs, voted 3-2 Wednesday in favor of allowing “qualified teachers” to volunteer to be armed on the job, local ABC affiliate KRDO reported.
The measure passed four years to the day after 20 children and six school personnel were gunned down at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.
Gun-carrying teachers would be required to have permits and take a gun safety course.
While the purpose of the measure is to keep children safe, some parents are divided on the issue, saying some teachers have “anger issues” and would be a threat carrying a gun.
Other school districts in Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma and California have adopted similar policies for teachers.”
