Law passes in South Dakota to allow teachers to carry guns

| No Comments

A law signed Friday by South Dakota's governor Dennis Daugaard says that school employees can carry a gun while on the job, the New York Times said.

The law, which is not mandatory for teachers to abide by, had mixed reactions by teachers. Some teachers have wanted a law of this type since the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting in December 2012, while others are worried it will create more accidental shootings, the Star Tribune said.

South Dakota does not appear to be the only state that wanted a law like this to pass. Georgia, New Hampshire and Kansas are looking to enact similar measures.
