Iowa Senate Advances Bill Allowing School Staff To Carry Firearms


 A contentious bill proposing that teachers and staff carry firearms in schools is progressing in Iowa’s legislative process. Following Senate debate, the bill heads back to the House for further consideration. Despite removing a section for funding security officers, the legislation maintains background check requirements for armed staff. Advocates argue that armed staff could serve as a deterrent to potential threats. At the same time, critics express concerns over heightened risks and insurance complications. The bill’s fate awaits House approval amidst ongoing debate over school safety measures.
