Patch Poll: Allow School Administrators To Carry Guns?
A bill in the state legislature "would give Georgia boards of education leeway to allow school administrators to carry concealed weapons in buildings, at school functions – even on buses."
What should be done to prevent another Newtown massacre?
One Georgia legislator has an idea: Allow public school administrators to carry concealed weapons on campus, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Jim Galloway, a political writer for the paper, reports that state Rep. Paul Battles, R-Cartersville, is introducing a bill that would require administrators packing heat to complete a basic training course and face annual re-testing.
Battles talked to local school officials, saying,
“We went through the discussion process of even possibly deputizing some of the administrators. We had long discussions about different approaches. We came up with what I feel is the cleanest, most appropriate way for school systems to deal with their inability to provide security.”
