Bill would allow guns in NC private, religious schools
RALEIGH, N.C.– State Sen. Stan Bingham has filed a proposal that would allow private and church affiliated schools to have armed employees or volunteers on property, WRAL reports.
Senate Bill 146 does not require certification other than a concealed-carry permit, according to the report. It would allow a school administrator to approve the armed employee or volunteer.
The proposed bill would also allow concealed-carry permit holders to carry a gun on church affiliaed school grounds, during a religious service or event.
A similar bill that was also filed by Bingham, would do the same for public and charter schools, creating school safety marshals who would carry guns on property.
