Kevin: Teachers, Guns & Idaho Law

Should teachers be allowed to carry guns in the classroom, in hopes of deterring school shootings? The question is somewhat of a moot point in Idaho. That’s because, under existing state law, a school board can authorize a teacher to carry a firearm. “There’s no requirement that the Legislature pass a new law or statute,” state schools superintendent Tom Luna told reporters Thursday morning. Asked whether he considers the existing law adequate, Luna wouldn’t bite. He said he was only pointing out that the law is on the books/Kevin Richert, The EDge. More here.

Question: What do you think? Would a teacher have trouble getting a permit from your local school board to carry a firearm at school?
