The madness continues in Jefferson City.
Two days ago, I wrote about HB 70, sponsored by Rep. Mike Kelley, R-Lamar, which would allow school teachers and administrators to carry guns.
The text of the bill has now been posted on the House website and the Kelley bill's 24 co-sponsors include three Joplin area legislators- Rep. Bill Lant, R-Joplin, Rep. Bill Reiboldt, R-Neosho, and Rep. Charlie Davis, R-Webb City. Another co-sponsor is Rep. John McCaherty, R-High Ridge, who last year raised campaign money by raffling off an AR-15.
Note: Kelley's bill also applies to teachers and administrators at colleges and universities in the state.
