School district wary of plan to allow teachers to carry guns
As the Alaska Legislature begins its session today, one of the items on its agenda is House Bill 55, a measure introduced by Rep. Bob Lynn (R-Anchorage) that would allow teachers to carry concealed weapons into schools “for defensive use.” In Kodiak, school district officials said they’re wary of the proposal. “It’s a tough one; I have mixed feelings,” said school board president Melissa Borton. “My gut feeling is...
