Ohio School District Votes 5-0 to Arm Staff

Ohio School District Votes 5-0 to Arm Staff

On Wednesday, the Montpelier Exempted Village Schools Board of Education voted 5-0 to put guns on campus.

Their move will allow custodians to undertake training and carry handguns on the K-12 school grounds in Williams county. 

It will be a show of force and a real life defense against criminals like Adam Lanza.

School board president Larry Martin said the crime at Sandy Hook Elementary forced his hand: “Our main goal is to offer safety for our students while they are in our classrooms and in the building. We have to do something and this seems like the most logical, reasonable course to go with.”

Superintendent Jamie Grime echoed Martin’s sentiment: “There is a need for schools to beef up their security measures… guns in the hands of the right people are not a hindrance. They are a means to protect.”
