School staff carrying guns won’t face major training requirements, bill says

Journal-News |

School staff carrying concealed weapons on campus would not be required to complete the same training as police officers, under a bill that won approval in the Ohio Senate on Wednesday.

Senate Bill 317 would exempt school staff from the training requirements, which were applied in a court ruling from a case out of Butler County. Senators adopted the bill on a 21-10 vote and sent it to the Ohio House for consideration. 

It is opposed by groups that favor gun restrictions while it is supported by the Buckeye Firearms Association and National Rifle Association.
