Gov. Mike Pence isn't supportive of proposal to require armed employee at all Indiana schools
INDIANAPOLIS - Republican Gov. Mike Pence isn't throwing much support behind a proposal that would require Indiana schools to have an employee carrying a loaded gun during school hours.
The governor's office released a statement Tuesday saying Pence "believes that decisions about school safety and security should be made by local schools, with support from the state."
The bill approved by an Indiana House committee would require a new school protection officer. The officers could be police officers or school employees as long as they met training standards set by a statewide school safety board.
