One of the most egregious controls currently under consideration is Democrat Assemblyman Kevin McCarty’s AB 424. That measure would guarantee that law-abiding teachers cannot shoot back if under attack.
California has nearly 1,000 school districts. State Democrats previously secured a law prohibiting teachers from being armed for self-defense except in districts where the superintendent grants permission for teachers with concealed-carry permits to carry at K-12 schools. The result? Five districts allow teachers and/or teachers and staff to be armed for self-defense, as long as those teachers and/or staff have a concealed-carry permit.
Have there been crimes committed by armed teachers? No.
Have there been crimes committed by armed staff members? No.
