Lawmakers Propose Allowing Armed Teachers in Maine Schools | app

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Republican lawmakers have said it’s time to step up security in Maine schools, either with armed security guards or allowing teachers to be armed.

A bill sponsored by Rep. Steven Foster, R-Dexter, would allow a school employee who completes a certification to have a firearm on school property. Saying “the time has come,” Foster said he started thinking about arming school staff after a Florida school shooting in which 17 people were killed in 2018. The year last, a gunman killed 19 children and two teachers at a Texas school.
