New law lets South Dakota schools arm teachers
By CNN Staff
School boards in South Dakota will be able to let school employees, hired security personnel or volunteers carry guns in schools under a law signed Friday by Gov. Dennis Daugaard.
Under these programs, the school boards can arm people "to secure or enhance the deterrence of physical threat and defense of the school, its students, its staff, and members of the public on the school premises against violent attack," [but] would first be required to complete a training program.
Some other states, including Utah, allow teachers to have loaded weapons inside classrooms.
