Governor Signs Tennessee School Gun Law Allowing Teachers and Staff to Carry Firearms on Campus

Tennessee Governor Bill Lee signed a bill allowing teachers and school staff to be armed on school premises. This decision comes amidst ongoing debates about arming educators in response to the prevalence of mass shootings across the United States. The legislation requires school personnel to meet specific conditions, including obtaining proper permits, training, and authorization. Critics argue that this law could potentially put students at greater risk and deviate from the primary focus of education. Despite concerns, the bill reflects a national trend as gun violence remains a leading cause of death among children in the US.
