Monadnock Ledger-Transcript: No guns in classrooms

The Monadnock Ledger-Transcript joins the chorus of newspapers condemning House Bill 609, which would allow New Hampshire schools to arm teachers:

A bill put forward by Fremont Republican Daniel Itse calls for local school districts to decide whether school staff should be permitted to carry guns at school. It’s hard to imagine a world in which teachers carry guns at school, much less the potential ramifications of a firearms falling into the wrong hands in such a scenario. The bill, we hope, will be found inexpedient to legislate, and Itse has surmised the bill’s fate is just that.
