Maine State Senator Proposes Bill To Allow Teachers To Carry Guns In School

1a

(Derek Wood) –  A lawmaker and former state trooper in Maine is pushing forward a bill that would allow school employees the option of possessing a concealed firearm.

“The fact that a person was armed would not be common knowledge. Only school officials and law enforcement would know,” said David Burns, pushing the bill.

The bill wouldn’t just arm teachers, it would involve psychological screenings similar to those done with perspective police officers.

“it would also involve a training very similar to what we administer to new police officers before they’re certified and able to carry a weapon,” Burns elaborated.

This bill will soon hit committees and public hearings.
