New Ohio Law Allows School Staff to Carry Guns on Campus After 24-Hour Training

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine, a Republican, signed a bill into law on June 13 that allows public school teachers and staff to carry a gun on campus after they have received 24 hours of professional training, an annual background check, and an additional eight hours of training each year.

The purpose is to provide greater security for the students and the schools, said the governor.

"The consensus, strong, strong consensus in the way police officers have been trained for now a number of years, is you go in and eliminate the shooter," said DeWine at a Monday press conference, in reference to school shootings and protecting students............

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

RINO DeWine made a point of saying this law requires no one to carry a gun. Yeah, we get it.
Liberty is meaningless where the right to utter one’s thoughts and opinions has ceased to exist. That, of all rights, is the dread of tyrants. It is the right which they first of all strike down.

This is the sort of thing that will at least permit contrasting models for school security.

Now, for the signs: WARNING: The faculty and staff at this facility are armed and will use lethal force to protect the students and others here if necessary.

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
