Senate Committee Advances Bill To Allow Guns In School

Senate Committee Advances Bill To Allow Guns In School

Detractors argue guns in the hands of teachers and other less-experienced gun users could make for more risky teaching environments.

The primary sponsor, Republican state Senator Donald White of Armstrong County, said the bill would be most useful in rural school districts where a police response to a violent incident may take valuable time.

"The National School Safety Security Services advises against it", she said.

Martin said he would "absolutely" be confident in the ability for school employees to be trained appropriately.

Judge slammed by Trump for 'Mexican heritage' will hear Montes case
During the presidential election, then-candidate Trump called out Curiel for his handling of a lawsuit against Trump University. King told Newsmax in 2013 that for every young immigrant that becomes a valedictorian, another 100 are smuggling drugs.

The bill's backers seem not to have considered that armed school personnel only would complicate matters for police arriving at a school during an emergency.

The bill's short title is "An Act amending the act of March 10, 1949 (P.L.30, No.14), known as the Public School Code of 1949, in duties and powers of boards of school directors, providing for protection and defense of pupils".

"This makes a big statement to the education community that the state Senate Education Committee is using sound and definitive research to put the best interests of our students first", Portantino said.

The North Dakota Senate has killed a measure that would allow any elected official to carry a hidden gun in a government building or at a public gathering.

Egyptian-American woman freed in Egypt goes home on US military plane
Her case was on the agenda when President Donald Trump met earlier this month with Egypt's president. Trump dispatched a USA government aircraft to Cairo to bring Hijazi and her family to Washington.

The Pennsylvania State Education Association, the state's public teachers union, called the bill "misguided" and would not make schools safer. "What our association does oppose is arming teachers, education support professionals, and other school staff".

He added, "Harrisburg can help schools be safer by giving them adequate funding so schools can hire trained security professionals", and noted Wolf supports increasing funding for the Education Department's Safe Schools Initiative.

"This legislation would create more problems for first responders arriving at the scene of an armed confrontation, making it more hard to immediately distinguish a perpetrator from a school employee", said Jerry Oleksiak, the union's president.

Other school districts in Lancaster County could not be immediately reached for this story or said they needed more information on the bill before commenting.
