Governor Rick Snyder of Michigan vetoed a bill that would have allowed guns in schools.
His reason was that the bill did not have a provision allowing schools to opt out if they didn’t want guns in their buildings.
Presumably the next legislature, if so inclined, could make that fix. Let’s hope not. Guns don’t belong in schools.
As I pointed out in an earlier post, school personnel should not be expected to carry weaponry to match the arsenal that was carried into Sandy Hook Elementary School by the shooter in Newtown.
Guns don’t belong in schools. They belong only in the hands of law officers.
The national and state leadership of the American Federation of Teachers had urged Snyder to veto.
This is a piece of good news.
