Tennessee Approves Legislation Allowing Teachers to Carry Guns in Schools

The Tennessee legislature recently approved a bill allowing teachers and school staff to carry concealed handguns in schools. The bill’s passage marked a divisive moment in Tennessee’s ongoing debate over firearms and school safety. Critics argue that arming teachers introduces risks and could lead to more accidents or misuse. The bill will require school staff carrying guns to have permits, undergo background checks, mental health evaluations, and receive 40 hours of training annually. However, opponents question whether this measure will truly address school safety concerns and fear that it will only add to the risks in educational settings.
