Ohio AG files brief in support of school districts letting employees go armed

Ohio Capital Journal |

Ohio’s Attorney General Dave Yost this week put his support behind a Butler County school district’s policy to arm school personnel.

“This case presents the question whether school districts may allow non-security employees to carry firearms on school grounds,” Yost wrote in a brief to the court. “The answer is yes.”

Yost filed the brief as an interested party in the case of Gabbard v. Madison Local School District Board of Education, a case in which parents at the school sued to keep the school from implementing such a policy.
