Gov: Time to discuss arming school officials

by AP posted Dec 18 2012 4:37PM
     RICHMOND. (AP) -  Gov. Bob McDonnell says policymakers should discuss allowing school officials to carry firearms on campus.
 
     If school officials were trained and chose to have a weapon, McDonnell says they might have an opportunity to stop someone from trying to get into a school.
 
 
     He says policy changes shouldn't occur in the immediate aftermath of an event such as the mass shooting on Friday at a Connecticut elementary school. But he says it's appropriate to hold a larger discussion about related issues.
 
     McDonnell says gun control isn't a comprehensive solution to violence in America. He says access to mental health care, personal responsibility and the overall health of our culture also should be discussed.
