A bold bill in Annapolis that will allow teachers to fight back in the event of a school shooting.
In the wake of tragic school shootings like Sandy Hook where 20 children were killed and here at home, like in 2012 when a Perry Hall high student shot another on the first day of school, one man is pushing to make sure teachers and in Maryland can fight back.
“While tragedy’s like this will still happen we can cut down the number of people who are injured,” said Delegate Rick Impallaria.
Impallaria tells WJZ he sponsored the bill because he thinks school would be safer. He wants to allow teachers and other school officials to carry guns on school grounds if they get the necessary school board approval and a permit from the state police.
