State Rep. Steve Carra today announced he is drafting legislation to allow schools to maintain lockboxes for teachers to secure personal weapons in case of an attack.

“School and state authorities must be fully prepared if, God forbid, another violent attacker targets students at school,” said Carra, of Three Rivers. “Teachers and staff care for their students’ safety, and some of these professionals are willing to use their gun or taser if a tragic need for school defense arises. I am putting together a plan to enable educators to protect their students with lawful weapons, stored securely for an emergency we pray never comes again.”

Carra said his plan would allow faculty and staff, for the purpose of protecting students and others from imminent and malicious harm, to store lawfully owned firearms or tasers in a secure lockbox at the school. Carra’s proposal would allow self-defense lockboxes at K-12 schools, colleges and other educational institutions, both public and private.

Additional details will be announced when the legislation is introduced.
