Mike Kelley: Teachers can hide their guns from students

In an article in the Nevada Daily Mail, Rep. Mike Kelley, R-Lamar, sponsor of HB 70, which would allow teachers to carry concealed weapons at schools, is not worried about the prospect of a student getting hold of one of the weapons.

"There are some teachers who would never even pick up a gun, but 'concealed weapon' doesn't necessarily mean a handgun. They could carry Mace or a taser."Asked if he is concerned that a student might take a gun from a teacher, Kelly said weapons could be concealed in such ways as to keep students from knowing the teachers had them.
I can already tell this is going to work well.

Mr. Kelley is very much mistaken if he thinks guns can be hidden from students in the classroom. The teacher will either have the gun on her person or in her desk, so the troubled and/or agitated student won't have to look too hard to find it. Expanded mental health services would be a better investment as far as I'm concerned.

Kelley was elected only because people did not know him. He never campaigned on being very smart.
