Hmm, 728 hours? at 8 hours a day, 5 days a week that’s 4 or 5 months of solid firearms training.Witness wrote: ↑Wed Jun 23, 2021 11:14 pm Some gun news for our gun nuts fans:
Armed staff policy at Butler County school district illegal, Ohio Supreme Court says
CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A southwestern Ohio school district’s controversial policy allowing 10 teachers and other staff members to carry weapons on campus with just 24 hours of training is illegal, the state’s top court said Wednesday.
Madison Local Schools must follow current state law that requires more extensive training or 20 years peace officer’s experience, the 4-3 decision reads.
Ohio law permits school boards to decide whether to allow teachers and other staff to carry guns into school buildings.
But state lawmakers have mandated that they be well-trained with 728 hours first.
In 2018, in the wake of a shooting at one of its schools in 2016, Madison City Schools in Butler County approved a policy allowing armed staff with 24 hours training, including eight earned at a one-day class to obtain a license to carry a concealed weapon.
Apparently, the average police officer training in the US takes about 4 months… and afaik that is mostly non firearms.
This is a back door ban.
