TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -
A new bill will go before state legislators that could allow teachers to carry guns in the classroom. Tucsonans seem to have mixed feelings about the idea.
The bill would allow school districts to let any teacher or staffer carry a gun as long as they complete a 24 hour training class. The training would include mock scenarios and how to properly handle and store the gun.
Supporters say the legislation would protect children and staff while opponents argue the guns could end up in the wrong hands.
"I just think it's too easy for things to happen," Lynn Foth, who is against the bill, said. "If the teacher responds to an emergency in the class, the gun is sitting in her purse, in her desk and somebody goes and picks it up, I just think that opportunities are too great for something to happen."
Thomas Fantmann, a supporter of the bill, said, "It could save a life or two and if they're not carrying it with them but still have access, they've got the potential to maybe end a dangerous situation."
The legislation is in its early stages and it's hard to tell if it may have a chance. A similar bill just over a year ago aimed at allowing rural school teachers to carry gun but it was shot down by the house.
