    You know what! I may get to carry on my school campus!!!

    Don't bother to say, "Don't get your hopes built up" - it's too late for that.

    Anyway, I heard on the news last night that our Governor is expected to sign a bill to allow police trained teachers to carry on campus. Only LE and the teacher will know.

    The intent seems to be to better protect students from a shooting like Sandy Hook.

    I'm a teacher, community college, and I would gladly take the 40 hour police training. Maybe they can teach me to shoot better while they're at it.

    I'm going to look into this tomorrow. It just sounds too good to be true, but....

    I would love to see more states allow this. The saying goes, I think... you'll never know when you need it. Something like that. Could be another Sandy Hook incident or could be a jealous ex-husband with a knife.
    A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    I think you'll be a great candidate for this. Good luck.

    Excellent news. I think as more states allow this, we will oneday in the future see where this will be effective in stopping a school shooter. God Bless

    MI did think like this, the legislature passed it, and your RINO Gov vetoed it.

    Very cool! I expect this idea to catch on in other states as well.

    Thumbs up

    It would be great if you could do that. That is the best common sense way to protect teachers and students from soulless, murderous, nut-jobs.

    And as a huge plus the Police could learn quite a bit from you in 40 hours.

    It is a start...

    I will never be a registered, certified staff member that "only LE know about". That never seems to last very long. I will carry when it is nobody's business who is carrying, and both BG's and GG's need to assume every adult is armed.

    ...but it is a start.

    Tangle, I don't think you will be lacking in the shooting department, at least as to hitting where you aim.
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.
