    A number of states do allow for this. They can do it at the local level with permission from the school board or superintendent. Most don't talk a lot about it, because concealed is concealed. The ones I have read about are usually ones with the school being a fair run from the nearest cop shop. A lot of small towns have either no law enforcement presence, or contract with the county for a few hours, or have one underpaid overworked person in a uniform.

    One Minnesota town, Jordan, is setting up a substation (desk, chair, phone, computer) in a room at the school where the on duty cop can do his paper work.

    There are some school districts in Texas that are already doing this...

    The news wasn't about SD being the first state ever, to allow teachers to carry. The important point here is, that it's the first state to implement such action following the hysteria surrounding the tragedy at Sandyhook. Finally, wiser heads are beginning to prevail, especially at the legislative level. Keep on keepin' on.

    Now that they are "allowed" to carry, will they? That's the real question.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    Actually, while state law now allows it, each individual school district gets to decide of teachers can carry here.

    Now that's the type of new gun law that we should be implementing at the federal level.
    Good for SD!
    Stop whining and go do something that makes a difference!

    Now every psycho in SD knows that if they try to shoot up a school there would be armed resistence.
