Kelley: Bill to arm teachers likely to pass House

The new state political source, Missouri Times, features an interview with Rep. Mike Kelley, R-Lamar, about his HB 70, which would allow teachers to carry concealed weapons in the classroom.

In the article, Kelley indicates he thinks the bill will get past the House, though he is unsure about its fate when it reaches the Senate:

Kelley said he would feel more comfortable (having teachers carrying guns in the classroom). Kelley, a gun-owner and enthusiast, has a conceal and carry endorsement and regularly carries his weapon on him in the Capitol building, which he is permitted to do as an elected member of the House.Despite differences, they both agreed on one thing: HB 70 will probably pass the house. In the Senate, however, the future is unclear, with internal divisions among Republicans, Kirkton said, and the “unpredictability,” of the Senate, as Kelley discussed, the bill’s future remains uncertain.
