Just like the swallows return to Capistrano, the General Assembly arrived back in Harrisburg this week after its summer recess, and right away lawmakers turned their attention to the important matter of arming school teachers. The Senate Education Committee heard testimony regarding a bill that would give school districts the option to allow employees to possess firearms as long as the employees are licensed to carry a concealed weapon and meet certain training requirements. They also would be provided anonymity so no one else would know they’re packing. Sure, that’ll work. Uh, hey Mr. McGillicuddy, is that a pistol in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?
