South Dakota Teachers Will Now Be Able to Carry Guns in Classrooms
From RapidCityJournal.com, Despite opposition from the education community, the school sentinel bill was signed into law Friday by South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard.
The bill gives school boards the authority to allow armed personnel in school buildings.
The House had previously approved the plan, but the Senate added requirements that said school boards must discuss the program in open meetings and decisions to adopt the sentinel programs can be referred to public vote.
The bill certainly does not force anyone to carry guns and local law enforcement will have to sign off on local school districts armed personel programs.
