Concealed Carry in Classroom Vote Offers a Glimmer of Hope for CA Schools

Kern County will be allowing High School teachers and staff to protect themselves and their students.


Despite the passage of more gun control in their state this election, California gun advocates can cheer one major victory outside of the election of pro-Second Amendment President-Elect Donald Trump. Kern High School District trustees voted 3-2 earlier this month to allow teachers and certificated staffers with Concealed Carry Weapon (CCW) permits to bring guns to campuses.

While the Board has not yet drafted regulations, trustees have indicated that they’ll limit the caliber of the bullets that can be carried, require 40 to 80 hours of training and won’t make carrying a gun mandatory.

While critics are complaining about the timing of this vote (it was part of a special meeting during school hours), we all know that the gun grabbers really just wanted more notice to protest and grab media attention.

This new policy is not only a victory for gun rights. More importantly, it is a victory for student safety.
