“A school board in St. Helens, Ore., voted to allow teachers and staff to pack heat on school grounds. St. Helens School Board chairman Marshall Porter told ABCNews.com that the board lifted a ban that prevented school employees from carrying guns on campus with concealed weapons permits [last] Wednesday.” Teachers with a concealed handgun license can pack heat in the District’s two elementary schools, one middle school, one high school and three alternative schools. They now have the same rights as parents with a concealed handgun license, who are exempt from both Beaver State prohibitions and the federal Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990–which really needs to go away. If there’s a school shooting during a Republican President’s administration, with a Republican House and Senate, it will. FWIW.
