South Dakota OKs law allowing teachers to carry guns in schools3/8/2013
Since the school shootings in Newtown, Conn., the fallout has included the galvanization of gun-control advocates — and people in fervent opposition to gun control. But an additional consequence has been the push to arm teachers. Now, South Dakota became the latest state to allow teachers and personnel to tote guns in schools. Gov. Dennis Daugaard signed a bill that allows teachers and staff who want to carry concealed weapons to do so. South Dakota joins Utah and Texas as states in which teachers are allowed to allow the practice. Georgia, New Hampshire and Kansas are also considering similar laws to South Dakota’s. [Source]
