Law enforcement to explain gun law to school district leaders

Posted: Updated:

The new gun law raises questions about what this will mean for teachers and schools. And the fact that now 18-year-olds can have a concealed weapon permit.

On Friday, the Morgan County Sheriff's Department will meet with school leaders and district attorneys to discuss the law.

They look at how the law applies to schools and come up with a policy on how it could affect schools including parking lots, after-school venues and whether teachers are allowed to carry.

Sheriff Ana Franklin said they will also address the issue of 18-year-old seniors having guns in trucks at school during hunting season.

"We're going to address that and make sure that there's as much clarity in that that there can be so there is no miscommunication with our seniors or young folks that they feel like they're within the law and not thinking they are doing something wrong and they maybe," said Sheriff Franklin.

Franklin said once they have a policy prepared they will give it to parents and teachers before school starts.
