A bill that would require personality screenings and gun training for teachers or school employees that want to carry on campus passed in the Indiana Senate on Tuesday.
Indiana law states the school districts can choose whether or not to allow firearms on campus, in which at least three have as more are considering it after a school shooting last year in Noblesville.
Democrats made the argument that teachers should not have to consider having to shoot students they have educated all year, and said that guns do not belong in school at all.
Reports indicate that the bill is based on a training regimen already used by schools in Jay County, and the requirements of the bill would cost a school district about $1,000 if one chooses to implement the measures.
