Bill introduced to allow Pa. teachers to carry guns; Wolf promises veto

Tennessee Senate committee passes abortion bill

Senate Bill 383 would allow school boards to decide if qualified employees should be allowed to access guns on school grounds.

Finally, "This bill will provide another option for schools - especially those in rural areas - by providing a quick response to school shootings and improving the safety and security of our children, teachers and school staff".

But according to Spicka, there has been at least one experience in Pennsylvania that shows bringing guns into school can increase risk.

The Pennsylvania State Education Association, the state's public teachers union, called the bill "misguided" and would not make schools safer.

"I'd be more concerned about an intruder or someone else overpowering the person and taking the firearm because they don't have the same training as a police officer", said Leichliter, who added that Penn Manor High School has a full-time armed school resource officer. "Gov. Wolf would also support increasing funding for the Department of Education's Safe Schools Initiative".

North Korea threatens 'super-mighty' strike on U.S.
US Ambassador Nikki Haley separately stressed that the onus was on North Korea to prevent an escalation. Pyongyang periodically warns Washington of the dire consequences of taking on North Korea militarily.

"PSEA is for strategies that keep students safe". SB 383 would not mandate that schools participate; however, it gives school boards across the Keystone State the ability to establish policies and certain protocols to allow staff to carry concealed firearms. "We're essentially reaffirming local control".

The Republican, representing Indiana County in Western Pennsylvania, had previously introduced the bill last session.

"Every school district around the country from every demographic and socioeconomic level that has moved teenage school start time later has seen a measurable, positive result for student achievement and student public health". "I just want to say it's a sad commentary on our society in general that we have to be discussing this but I believe it's very important".

Even if the bill gets through the Senate and the House, its chances of winning Governor Tom Wolf's signature are slim to none.

"School personnel shouldn't be told that the only help they will get from Harrisburg to make schools safer is the option to carry a loaded gun around their students", Abbott wrote.
