Later this afternoon, important school security measure Senate Bill 317 is scheduled to be considered in the Senate Government Oversight and Reform Committee. Please contact committee members and ask them to support the right to self-defense of school employees.
Senate Bill 317, sponsored by Senator Bill Coley, allows those school employees who are allowed to lawfully carry a concealed firearm for self-defense on school property to do so without being required to undergo an extensive police training program. SB 317 clarifies the intent of the law and allows local school districts to continue to determine what is in the best interest of their faculty and students.
Again, please contact members of the Senate Government Oversight and Reform Committee and ask them to support Senate Bill 317.
