Ohio Teachers Are Now Allowed To Have Guns in Their Classrooms 
Sarah Arnold / Townhall Tipsheet
As many Democrat states call to get rid of guns, Republicans are fighting to keep the Second Amendment alive and protected. 

This week a new law went into effect in Ohio allowing teachers, principals and school staff to carry firearms while in the classroom. 

House bill 99 will require only 24 hours of training, down from the previous 700 hours, followed by 8 annual hours of re-qualification training. School staff will also be required to undergo yearly criminal background checks. 

“We have a lot of requests from schools to allow this to be done,” Gov. Mike DeWine (R-OH) said adding, "to continue to help our public and private schools get the tools they need to protect our children. ... We have an obligation to do everything we can every single day to try and protect our kids."

The training will also include how to stop an active shooter, de-escalation techniques, and first aid care. Read more and see tweet here.
