Colorado District Approves Arming Teachers, Staff

posted on December 16, 2016

The board of education representing a small Colorado school district has voted to allow trained faculty and staff to carry concealed handguns on campus to better protect the students there. 

The five board members of Hanover School District 28 approved the recommendation on a 3-2 vote. With the vote, volunteer staff will be able to obtain permits to carry concealed handguns on school property, and will be required to obtain post-certification training, attend ongoing courses and remain anonymous.

“It takes 45 minutes to get anyone out here. My son's life is worth it to do this,” district parent Terry Siewiyumptewa, who supported the proposal to arm staff, told The Gazette. “I believe a voluntary staff member could save lives.”
