Maine Bill Would Allow School Employees to Carry Weapons
A proposed bill would allow teachers and other school employees to carry concealed firearms in school. As you might guess, the bill raised questions among legislative leaders. First of all it would not be mandatory. The proposed legislation would also require the approval of the school board, superintendent and principal, as well as the notification of parents.
The bill would require school employees who want to carry a concealed weapon to take a firearms training course and to undergo a psychological exam. The bill also would allow schools to go in a bit of a different direction, giving school districts the authority to hire armed security guards.
