Trained teachers allowed guns in schools, proposes Pa. Senate bill

Trained teachers allowed guns in schools, proposes Pa. Senate bill

The bill moves to the full Senate for consideration. "With the legal authority, licensing and proper training, I believe allowing school administrators, teachers or other staff to carry firearms on the school premises is an option worth exploring". The bill, which was approved in a 36-1 vote, would also remove a limit on wine bottle sizes, allowing the sales of bottles such as the Nebuchadnezzar, which holds 20 standard wine bottles. It quickly drew the ire of Gov. Tom Wolf who vowed to veto it.an education advocate also criticized senators for voting on the bill without a prior public hearing in which the pros and cons could be discussed.

Tarte said the penalty in his bill wouldn't be considered a moving violation, and therefore wouldn't cause higher insurance rates for drivers caught hogging the left lane.

An effort to ban slow drivers from cruising in the left lane was voted down in an N.C. Senate committee Wednesday, effectively killing the bill for this legislative session. "If they don't want it, fine".

He said the Department of Education considers "other lawful purpose" to be "unclear and unsettled, especially as it relates to school employees and parents (or citizens) possessing a weapon on school property".

"It looked like a butcher house; there was blood everywhere", White said, recalling his police escort through the crime scene at the school in his district. During the tour, White said, all he could think about was how much blood he'd see if the student was armed with a gun during his 4.5-minute slashing spree or in another district without local police and state police 40 minutes away.

Goodman is executive director of the gun safety advocacy group CeaseFirePA.

Opponents of the idea filled the gallery, including someone in a bear costume holding a sign that urged lawmakers to "keep kids safe (and Grizzlies, too)" - a jab at comments made by U.S. Education Secretary Betsy Devos in her confirmation hearing. "That's why we oppose it". The bill would allow documents or portions of documents such as the Declaration of Independence, the Constitutions of Pennsylvania and the United States; Acts of the Pennsylvania General Assembly and of the United States Congress, etc.to be used, read or posted in their entirety regardless of whether such documents contain religious references.

Current law prohibits firearms in schools, but there is an exception for a weapon that is "possessed and used in conjunction with a lawful supervised school activity or course or is possessed for other lawful goal".

"I believe that protecting our children would clearly qualify as 'other lawful objective, '" Dougherty said in a letter sent to the Indiana County School Board a year ago.
