RALEIGH 

North Carolina teachers and other school employees would be allowed to carry handguns on campus "to respond to acts of violence or an imminent threat of violence" under a bill filed Wednesday in the state legislature.
 
The "School Self-Defense Act" would create a "volunteer school faculty guardian" program where school employees would have permission to carry firearms on school grounds. The armed employees would have to meet requirements such as having a valid concealed carry handgun permit and completing 16 hours of active shooter training.

The primary sponsors of  House Bill 1039 are two Republican lawmakers: Rep. Larry Pittman of Cabarrus County and Rep. Michael Speciale of Craven County. Pittman has been vocal about letting teachers carry guns in the aftermath of national school shootings such as the Feb. 14 massacre of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

"We should give them a fighting chance," Pittman wrote in an April email to state lawmakers urging them to recommend arming teachers. "Otherwise, when they die, and children die whom they could have defended, their blood will be on our hands. I cannot accept that. I hope you will think this through and find that you cannot accept it, either."
