The Journal News is reporting that the Madison Local School District board voted unanimously Tuesday night to allow district teachers and staff to carry weapons to be "prepared and equipped to defend and to protect students," according to a resolution that passed. 



The vote came more than two years after 14-year-old Austin Hancock brought a gun into the cafeteria at Madison Junior-Senior High School and shot two classmates. 

Those people must "be permitted under Ohio law to carry a concealed handgun and must undergo response to active shooter training and re-certify each year prior to being authorized to convey and/or possess deadly weapons or dangerous ordnance in a school safety zone of the Madison Local School District," according to language in the resolution.

I can justify in my mind why Madison would allow the arming of staff and teachers in the wake of their school shooting 2 years ago.
The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.
