This week school board members approved the first reading of the new policy which would allow up to five staff members to carry a gun. The superintendent told Action News recent mass shootings across the country prompted the district to look into allowing the guns on campus.
Central Valley Guns co-owner Marvin Forbes supports Kingsburg Joint Union High School District’s proposed policy to allow certain staff members to carry a hidden gun.
“It’s a simple measure that is cost effective, in lieu of a school resource officer being hired full time and on campus,” said Forbes.
The one-school district is considering the new policy in light of the recent mass shooting in San Bernadino and other school shootings across the country.
Superintendent Randy Morris said up to five district employees who have a carry concealed weapon permit would be able to be armed on campus. The weapon could be worn underneath a shirt, or on the ankle underneath pants.
