Colorado District Board Votes To Allow Principal To Carry Gun

The AP (3/26) reports, "As lawmakers across the country debate arming teachers and administrators to prevent another deadly school shooting, one Colorado school district has voted to let its superintendent and a high school principal carry concealed semi-automatic pistols on campus - a move some say sidesteps laws meant to keep schools gun-free." The school board in rural Dolores County "voted unanimously in February to allow Ty Gray, principal of Dove Creek High School, and Superintendent Bruce Hankins to double as security officers, who under state law are allowed to carry guns on elementary, middle and high school campuses." The piece notes that critics "say the school board's decision is merely a semantic argument that skirts state laws prohibiting guns at schools."
