Neb. (state) senator probably won't try to pass bill that would arm schoolteachers

LINCOLN — Mark Christensen, a state senator who tried and failed two years ago to pass legislation to arm Nebraska teachers with concealed handguns says he's 99 percent sure he won't introduce a similar proposal in the upcoming session.

While that concept generated controversy in 2011, Friday's suggestion by the National Rifle Association to place armed security officers in every school seemed somewhat less divisive among those in Nebraska exploring ways to curb gun violence in schools.

“Having an armed person at the school properly trained, that's something we could take a look at,” Sen. Brad Ashford of Omaha said Friday. “I would certainly be less resistant to that than arming teachers.”

Ashford is chairman of the Legislature's Judiciary Committee, which would consider any gun-related proposal introduced after the session begins Jan. 9 at the State Capitol in Lincoln.

1. this guy is a nut

He tried to outlaw sex toys a few years back.

We're a lot better off nowadays though. Ernie Chambers is coming back to the unicameral and will put an end to the BS laws like the moron above has tried to pass.

2. Thanks Steve

Hi,
I don't think the unicameral is quite as batshit crazy as other legislatures, but we are getting there rapidly.

Peace, and GBR
