During a debate in the New York State Senate on enhanced school safety measures, Democrats asked the Republican majority to support a bill to ban teachers from having guns in schools.
Senator Todd Kaminksy, a Democrat from Long Island, says allowing teachers to be armed, as President Trump is proposing, would be “misguided”. Kaminksy’s bill would ban the practice from even starting in New York.
“Guns in our classrooms is dangerous, it’s a matter of time before something goes wrong,” Kaminsky said. “The answer to our gun problem is not more guns.”
