Senate approves bill to arm teachers and administrators (access required)

The Arizona Senate approved a bill Monday that could arm teachers and administrators in rural schools.

The bill passed the Senate on a 17-11 party line vote, and now moves to the House. If approved by both chambers, the measure would allow certain school employees to carry concealed firearms in schools with fewer than 600 students that are more than 30 minutes and 20 miles from the nearest law enforcement agency.
