A new law passed in Missouri will allow specially trained school employees to bring firearms onto school campuses, and these employees will be designated as “school protection officers.”

The new law allows any person with a valid concealed carry permit to openly carry their firearm of choice wherever they please, including in areas where firearms are publicly banned, such as schools.  This law also supersedes any city or town ordinances which ban the carrying of firearms in public.

School boards in Missouri already allow for teachers to carry concealed firearms on campuses, but the new law would require the Department of Public Safety to set up training courses and guidelines to train specific teachers or administrators for the new role of “school protection officer.”

“I think it’s important that we train those individuals if they are going to be carrying,” said state Senator Will Kraus, R-Mo., according to the Huffington Post.

While states such as New York, California, and Connecticut have expanded gun law restrictions since the Sandy Hook school shooting in Connecticut, according to ABC News, Missouri has become the 10th state to pass some sort of legislation to allow school employees to carry firearms within the premises of a school.

While Republican leaning states have tried to allow more guns into schools for protection purposes, Democratic leaning states have tried to restrict guns in schools for the same reasons.

Senator Jolie Justus, D-Kansas City, Mo., however, said this law would make things worse.  “The reality is we’re making our cities less safe,” Justus said.
