Diane Douglas: Let Teachers Carry Guns

The language allows school administrators to grant "specific authorization" even if the governing board expressly prohibits weapons in school. That only makes sense if the permission is for an occasional, specific circumstance, like an officer talking to a class, or maybe a guest speaker talking about hunter safety who uses a rifle for the demonstration. If it is interpreted to refer to teachers or other employees having weapons, that would mean a principal could allow teacher carry even if the board has voted against it.
