Ohio school district considers storing guns in case of shootings

A school district in Ohio's Logan County is considering storing loaded guns in school lock boxes, so teachers and staff members could use them in an emergency.

The proposal aims to protect faculty and students against active shooter scenarios. The Dayton Daily News reports that the Riverside Local School board members discussed the gun proposal last week, and they will revisit the issue on Dec. 16.

Superintendent Scott Mann told The Dayton Daily News that the gun policy could deter active shooters from attacks in Logan County schools. He added that he does not, however, support teachers having concealed firearms within classrooms.
