Ohio Governor Mike DeWine wants Buckeye schools to be some of the safest in the nation —and he’s passing laws to make sure of it. According to Just The News, DeWine has signed a bill that will allow teachers to carry a gun after 24 hours of training.

Teachers and other school employees previously were required to complete the same basic training as law enforcement, which took over 700 hours.
Under the new law, local school boards still have the ability to prohibit firearms on their campuses. Cleveland Mayor Justin Bibb said last week his school district intends to ban non-security personnel from carrying on campuses.
“Our goal is to continue to help our public and private schools get the tools they need to protect our children,” Gov. DeWine said. “Working together, we have come a long way to improve school safety in Ohio over the last decade, and we must continue this progress. We have an obligation to do everything we can every single day to try and protect our kids.”
