Cow Creek schools' gun policy makes national news

A local school district's new policy for teachers has attracted the attention of Breitbart News. The site reports:
Palo Cedro’s North Cow Creek School District will now allow teachers with concealed carry permits to bring their firearms to school for defense of themselves and their students.

By adopting this policy, North Cow Creek became the fifth district in the state to allow teachers to be armed. The other four districts that allow concealed carry at school are Kern High School District; Kingsburg Joint Union High School District; Folsom Cordova Unified School District; and Anderson Union High School District, which is in Shasta County, the same county in which North Cow Creek is located.

Record Searchlight reports, “It makes sense that Shasta County now has at least two districts that support CCW permit-holders — at 5,116 permits, it had the third-highest number of them [in the state], according to 2013 California Department of Justice data compiled by the Calguns Foundation.” [...]

At least 12 school districts in Colorado recently adopted policies that allow their teachers and staff to carry at school for defense of themselves and their students. And teachers are allowed to carry in at least 40 districts in Ohio.
