South Dakota Authorizes Teachers To Have Guns

What is this world coming to. South Dakota recently became the first state in the union to specifically authorize teachers to carry guns. Details are in this New York Times article, here. As the article states:

While some other states have provisions in their gun laws that make it possible for teachers to be armed, South Dakota is believed to be the first state to pass a law that specifically allows teachers to carry firearms.

About two dozen states have proposed similar bills since the shootings in December at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., but all of them have stalled.
