To the Editor: Board should permit teachers to carry guns

Board should permit teachers to carry guns

As a teacher at East High School, I think teachers and school personnel with concealed-carry licenses should be allowed to carry their weapon with them to school. The Ohio Revised Code gives teachers and school personnel this right if their Board of Education gives them permission.

The Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States and the Ohio Revised Code grant permission, so why wouldn't the Columbus Board of Education grant its permission? Teachers are entrusted with the safety of our students, so let us keep them safe. If the board is sincere about the safety of the students, then let those with CCW permits carry their weapons on the job.

If the board balks at giving this permission, it makes me question board members’ sincerity about keeping my students and this community’s children safe. The board talks a good talk, but it is only that: talk.
