A North Texas politician just elected to the state house has put forward a plan to allow concealed weapons on school campuses.
Jason Villalba, the elected representative for residents of a part of North Dallas, says he’s not calling for teachers to carry guns, but he is pushing for a designated school staffer to have that right.
Right now in Texas, schools are “gun free zones.” School districts prohibit anyone, other than police, to enter a school with a gun.
But State Representative-elect Jason Villalba has produced the “Protection of Texas Children Act.”
He wants schools to have a trained, designated campus “marshal,” someone who will carry a concealed weapon.
