Kentucky school district just voted to let teachers carry concealed guns

Teachers could soon be carrying concealed guns inside schools in Pike County under a proposal that was preliminarily approved Monday evening by the Pike County School Board.

The unanimous decision came after the board heard concerns about school safety from teachers, parents and administrators during a town hall meeting at Pike County Central High School. The discussion was prompted by multiple school shootings in recent weeks, including one at Marshall County High School in Western Kentucky that left two dead and another in Florida that left 17 dead.

The motion authorizes the school board’s attorney to work with the Pike County Sheriff’s Office, which would oversee the program, to finalize a formal policy for the school board to consider.

Pike County Schools Superintendent Reed Adkins said he hopes the board will give final approval within two to three weeks, and to have armed staff in schools by fall, if not sooner.

    I WANT AN AR15 AT EACH CORNER OF OUR SCHOOLS AND EVERY GAME, I WANT A GUN ON EVERY TEACHER QUALIFIED TO HANDLE ONE. THE LONG GUNS ARE FOR A PERSON WANTING TO SHOOT INTO A BUNCH OF KIDS LOADING AND UNLOADING BUSSES. I ALSO WANT ALL BACK PACKS TAKEN AWAY, A BACK PACK LOADED WITH EXPLOSIVES WOULD DO MORE DAMAGE THAN ANY GUN. WE HAVE VETS THAT ARE QUALIFIED TO HANDLE MILITARY TYPE OF WEOPANS AND I BET YOU COULD GET RETIRED VETS TO SERVE ONE OR TWO DAYS FOR FREE.

    THERE SHOULD BE NO GUN FREE AREA IN THE USA. I CARRIED A GUN, LOADED EVERYWHERE I WENT IN KOREA (51/53) AND SCORED 6 BULLS AND 4 REDS A 1,000
    YARDS. SO QUIT PLAYING POLITICS AND LET US THE TRAINED PEOPLE PROTECT ALL CITIZENS AND LET THE IDIOTS CRY.

    THE PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY IS PLAIN STUPID. THE SECOND ADMENDMENT PLAINLY GIVE EVER CITIZEN THE RIGHT TO OWN AND CARRY A GUN. GOOGLE IT AND READ IT. NO JUDGE, MAYOR, CHEIF OF POLICE, STATES ATTORNEY, GOVERNER, ATTORNEY GENERAL, EVEN OUR PRESIDENT OR THE SUPREME COURT HAS THE RIGHT TO DO AWAY WITH THIS LAW. THE ONLY WAY TO CHANGE THIS LAW IS TO GET A MAJORITY VOTE IN THE HOUSE AND SENATE AND THEN GIVE TO THE PRESIDENT FOR HIS SIGNATURE. WE DO NOT NEED GUN FREE ZONES IN THIS COUNTRY, ESPECIALLY ON OUR MLITARY BASES.
