Central Illinois school district considers arming administrators

Central Illinois school district considers arming administrators

1 day ago

From qconline.com:

School officials in a central Illinois town are considering training a handful of administrators as auxiliary police officers and letting them carry concealed handguns at the local high school.

The idea being considered at Washington Community High School is, like many campus-safety plans being discussed nationwide, a response to the December shootings that killed 20 children and six educators at an elementary school in Sandy Hook, Conn.

But it's illegal in Illinois to carry concealed weapons, so the proposal suggests a way around the law: Making a few administrators part of the police force, Washington police Chief Jim Kuchenbecker said.

"They would not be paid but they would be commissioned as part-time, auxiliary police officers with very restricted responsibilities," he said. "We're not talking about going back to the old days of the wild west and giving everybody a gun."

But those administrators would only be allowed to carry guns on campus meaning the guns would either be locked in the school or taken home at night. Kuchenbecker said he would prefer the latter.

I would fully support this agenda. Training an auxiliary police force using existing employees of the state (with required ongoing training and psychological testing) is genius.

We protect our president, mayor, and money with guns. It's about time we protected our schools with them.
