    Nevada Lawmaker Proposes Arming School Officials To Prevent Mass Shootings

    A Nevada assemblywoman says she may introduce a bill that would permit teachers and administrators in public schools carry firearms in the aftermath of Friday’s deadly massacre in Newtown, Connecticut.
    During an appearance on Ralston Reports, Michele Fiore (R) argued that arming people with weapons would prevent gun violence and touted legislation she introduced to “allow students and others with permits to carry concealed weapons on the campuses of the Nevada System of Higher Education.” Pressed by host Jon Ralston on what could be done to prevent shootings like the one in Sandy Hook Elementary, Fiore floated the idea arming school officials:
    RALSTON: What measures would you take as an elected official to prevent this from ever happening again?
    FIORE: My campus carry bill goes in the higher education, it doesn’t go K-12, so looking at this tragedy that happened with K-12, we might have to have an armed employee at the schools, that’s a measure, that’s a measure.
