St. Helens lifts ban on teachers carrying guns to school

St. Helens, Ore — The St. Helens school board Wednesday night lifted a ban on teachers and staff to carrying firearms on school grounds.

In March, the board had banned employees, contractors and volunteers from bringing weapons the property.

The old policy stated “This prohibition includes those who may otherwise be permitted by law to carry such weapons.”

In the same month, the St. Helens softball team raffled off an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle.

With the ban now lifted, teachers and staff with concealed-carry permits could carry guns anywhere at school, as allowed by state law.
