In Ohio, A heated debate over guns in schools is getting even louder. The Ohio House passed legislation that would allow some school employees to carry a concealed weapon.
“What happens if the teacher is unable to stop somebody coming into the school building, who’s liable. And what kind of mindset would you have to be in, if you have to hurt a child because they’re the one carrying the gun. It’s not worth the safety,” said Mullins.
Some lawmakers think otherwise. House Bill 8, which passed overwhelmingly out of the House Wednesday, says a school board could pick a school employee to carry a concealed weapon. It would also keep the name of the person carrying the weapon a secret.
“As a parent, I would certainly want to know if my kid’s teacher had a gun or not,” said Worthington teacher and Vice President of the Ohio Education Association, Scott DiMauro.
Where do we go from here?
