OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. - Oklahoma Representatives are reloading on a plan to allow armed teachers in the classroom.
Sapulpa Republican Rep. Mark McCullough, the proposal's author, attached the amendment to a separate bill about updating law enforcement standards.\
The House voted to accept the amendment and then voted 69-25 to pass the bill.
The measure now heads to the Senate.
Earlier this year, the chairman of the Senate Education declined to hear it.
Democratic Sen. Susan Paddack of Ada says she doesn't think the amendment will succeed in the Senate.
If it does pass, the measure would allow teachers and other school employees to bring weapons into schools if they receive specialized training from the Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training or CLEET.
