Guns Do Not Belong Where Our Children Learn!
Some Pennsylvania legislators have the misguided notion that arming our teachers is a good idea. Their proposals would make our schools and our kids less safe. Petition unterzeichnenPetition unterzeichnen
These dangerous proposals would allow local PA school boards to authorize teachers and school personnel to carry firearms in our schools during the school day.
At least two major Pennsylvania studies on the issue have rejected the idea of arming teachers or non-security personnel. A 2013 Joint State Government Commission on Violence report "strongly opposed" arming non-law enforcement personnel in schools. Another study from 2014, conducted by the Pennsylvania House Select Committee on School Safety, did not recommend arming general school personnel.
Sign the petition today to ask the legislature and Governor Wolf to reject this dangerous proposal.
