Lamar legislator files bill allowing teachers, administrators to carry guns
The latest example is HB 70, sponsored by Rep. Mike Kelley, R-Lamar, a legislator who is not an extremist by any means (a refreshing change considering the last two decades of Republican representatives from Lamar). The text of the bill, which was prefiled today, just four days after the mass murders at Sandy Hook Elementary School, has not been posted online, but its description is as follows:
Allows teachers and school administrators to carry concealed firearms on school premises if they have a valid concealed carry endorsement
Is that really the best we can do to protect the children in our schools? Armed resource officers in the buildings sounds like a far better solution to me. The last thing I want in Missouri schools is to have teachers and administrators carrying guns.
I await the criticism from the guns solve everything extremists.
