An Ohio school district’s new policy allows teachers and school staff to be armed over concerns of response times to active shooters.

The River Valley Local School District in rural Marion County joins 22 other school districts in the state that permit approved staff members to carry weapons on campus, according to the Marion Star.

“Our schools will no longer be soft targets and unprotected,” Superintendent Adam Wickham said, according to the outlet. “Most active-shooter events occur in areas of ‘gun-free zones’ or with minimal safety measures in place. We want to ensure our schools will not be soft targets.” (Excerpt from Fox News.)
