    North Carolina taking first steps to allow armed school volunteers.

    Bill would allow for arming school volunteers

    Raleigh, N.C. — Certain teachers and other volunteers could be designated as "school safety marshals" and be allowed to carry firearms in emergency situations under a bill filed by Sen. Stan Bingham, R-Davidson.

    Bingham said that he had met with sheriffs to talk about how school safety could be increased in the wake of the Newton, Conn., school shooting.

    There have been suggestions that any teacher with a concealed handgun permit be allowed to carry it onto educational property.

    But Bingham said that concealed carry permit holders have only a few hours of training and are not necessarily required to practice with their weapons as a law enforcement officials are.

    "That's not near enough training," he said.

    Rather, Senate Bill 27 would call for the North Carolina Criminal Justice Education and Training Standards Commission to come up with a training regime for volunteers.

    Rather than have their weapon in a lock box it should be carried on person. Maybe this can be a springboard to eliminate the gun free victim rich zones.

    It's about time.

    And so long as we seek to avoid having our schools become bunkered fortresses, it's going to be a necessity to have the capacity of withstanding violent criminal attack if such attack gets through the doors. In the meantime, while we're armed and prepared against such assaults, we can get to the business of redesigning the doors/windows, the entry/egress paths, and the procedures to be hardened beyond the weak levels most of them are at now.

    Kudos to NC ... if it passes.

    KEEP THE PRESSURE ON YOUR LEGISLATORS, GOVERNOR, SCHOOL BOARDS, folks. People are beginning to listen.

    I have to agree that because of the dunamics involved in thae type of situation/s thaty could encounter they need the training not only to be able to defend a classroom,but to be able to work as a team and pin down a shooter until LEO's can get on scene

    It wouldn't bother me at all even if they required a recurring training ever year with minimum performance levels. That would offset some of the complaints

    Re: North Carolina taking first steps to allow armed school volunteers.

    I think that they should have to attend some sort of tactical certification training yearly (at least) as well. Don't get me wrong, I think it is acceptable to have armed protection for our children. Thing is, I know plenty of people personally who would love to do this, but while their hearts are in the right place, their skillset isn't. We're talking about taking shots at a moving, thinking target while the most precious things in the world are around as potential collateral damage.

    I volunteer on a pretty regular basis at my son's school. And while my first reaction is, "I would love to stand armed at the door one day a week." Who better to protect my kid than me? But the fact is, there are better people, better trained people, I should say. And while tuition is one of our favorite topics to complain about, I would gladly contribute to the hiring of a well-trained safety officer, or the training of armed teachers. Perhaps firearms training as continuing education credits.

    This is excellent, and I agree that more training is required.

    Doesn't sound like they will be allowed to carry full time to me, only in emergency situations.

    Sure wish I could predict emergencies. It would keep me a whole lot safer.

    I do find it interesting that this is one of the recommendations made by the NRA. Of course everybody dismissed it out of hand exactly because it came from them. Now some people will get on board, even if they claim the idea as their own. In the end it shouldn't matter who good ideas come from, as long as they are good ideas.
