Colorado School District To Consider Arming Teachers

posted on December 14, 2016

The board of education for one El Paso County, Colo., school district will vote tonight whether to arm teachers and other staff at the school to better protect the district’s students.

Board members of Hanover School District 28, which has about 270 students, are concerned not only with the potential for mass shootings, but also with marijuana operations in the area possibly drawing dangerous cartel members to areas near the school.

“There are three (grows) within 2 miles of the school,” board member Michael Lawson told Gazette.com. “The Cuban and Colombian cartels are buying up land to grow marijuana in Colorado. We need to look at the safety of the schools and the kids.”

The resolution under consideration would allow “one or more employees of the district to be designated as security guards and authorized to carry firearms on school property.”
