In Lincoln, Nebraska lawmakers are likely to revisit the idea of permitting teachers to carry guns in school as of 2014, but the proposal will again face strong opposition.

State Sen. Mark Christensen of Imperial said he plans to introduce legislation that could allow teachers to bring concealed weapons into classrooms when lawmakers convene in January. A similar bill died in committee two years ago, but Christensen said he’s preparing a new version with additional requirements before teachers or school administrators could qualify.

“I absolutely don’t want every teacher to have one. Nobody does,” Christensen said. “But if you have a gunman coming into a school, I don’t want kids shot up and killed until the police arrive, which could be four or five minutes. It could be 10 minutes. Ten minutes could mean a lot of dead kids.”
