Missouri lawmaker suggests allowing teachers to carry guns in schools

Any public school teacher or administrator with a concealed-weapon permit would be allowed to carry guns in Missouri schools under a bill filed this week in the state House. Republican Rep. Mike Kelley of Lamar is sponsoring the legislation, which comes less than a week after a man shot and killed 26 victims — including 20 children — at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.
