Tribune and wire reports
Indiana’s public and charter schools would be required to have an employee carry a loaded gun during school hours under a proposal sponsored by a Seymour lawmaker.
Supporters said the proposal, which cleared a House committee Tuesday, could help prevent tragedies such as the December elementary school shooting in Newtown, Conn., in which 20 students and six teachers died. Opponents say they’re concerned that the proposal was rushed and that it’s unnecessary and could force schools to hire people who are willing to carry guns.
