ATLANTA - Members of a state committee said they need more information before they decide whether to allow administrators to carry firearms inside schools.
Rep. Paul Battles (R-Cartersville) came up with the proposal. He said after the mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school, he was trying to find a way to keep children safe in schools and in the classroom.
But many lawmakers on the Public Safety and Homeland Security committee had questions about who would be responsible if a school administrator shot someone by accident or had a mental breakdown. They also questioned if all districts be required to pick someone to carry a sidearm.
The committee decided to move the proposal to a subcommittee and vote on it next week.
