A school district in California is making history with this one huge decision. Would you feel safer if your kids were attending a school where this was the policy?
KINGSBURG, Calif. (KFSN) — Kingsburg High School District Board has made history becoming the second district in California to allow certain staff members to bring a gun on campus.
Board members for Kingsburg Joint Union High School District voted yes to a new policy they hope, will ensure the safety of students and staff in case of an active shooter or other extreme emergencies on campus. The new policy doesn’t require the volunteered staff members to shoot, but once the CCW permit holder signs the application, they’ve accepted the responsibility.
“And personally, the expectation of the superintendent is, given the situation, you will protect staff and students with your firearm that you’ve been granted permission to carry,” said Randy Morris, Superintendent.
The policy was suggested by board members following December’s San Bernardino mass shooting, and, other horrific crimes across the country. The superintendent would ultimately decide which staff members would be allowed to carry a concealed gun on campus– and those identities would remain a secret. Morris said he’s already received a few inquiries from staff.
