Bill to arm teachers shot down at Capitol


OKLAHOMA CITY – A bill that would allow teachers to arm themselves has been shot down at the Capitol.

The chairman of the Senate Education Committee said he doesn’t plan to grant a hearing on the measure.

This is the least week for bill to get a hearing.

House Bill 1062 would have allowed teachers to carry a weapon if they were trained and their district allowed it.

The bill passed the house but doesn’t appear to have a future in the senate.

It could be reassigned to another committee but that isn’t expected to happen.
