Governor Jay Nixon is voicing opposition to House Republicans’ plans to allow teachers in Missouri to carry guns in classrooms. 

In a letter to the state’s public school superintendents, Nixon says the proposal would put children at risk and take away the authority of local school districts to keep guns out of classrooms.

The sponsor of a bill that would allow Missouri teachers to be armed in classrooms says they won’t be running around their schools with guns drawn, acting like Rambo.
