MO House passes bill with goal to increase security in schools
ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - St. Louis was in mourning 135 days ago after a gunman killed two people at CVPA high school in South City. On Wednesday, there’s a new push by lawmakers to boost security at all Missouri schools.
Right now, districts can designate teachers or administrators as “school protection officers.” But if a new bill gets the ok schools would allow any “designated school personnel” to carry a gun if they obtain a concealed carry permit.
The House passed the bill today and it now heads to the Senate.
