Some schools, especially in rural districts, don’t have the resources for a security presence and if a school wants to allow off-duty or retired cops to carry concealed guns nearby in a school zone for protection it should be able to. It could deter or stop a school shooting and save lives.
Allowing off-duty or retired law enforcement officers to carry a concealed gun in a school zone will only increase the danger to students and increases the odds of an incident occurring that could end in tragedy. It’s not worth the risk even if it could deter or stop a school shooting.
