Concealed weapons ok’d for designated Hicksville school volunteers

While the rest of the schools in the state wres­tle with allow­ing guns in schools, Hicksville Schools has voted to allow cer­tain indi­vid­u­als to carry con­cealed weapons, and post on the school doors that they will use what­ever force is nec­es­sary to pro­tect stu­dents and staff. School lead­ers say it was not an overnight deci­sion, but comes after years of increas­ing secu­rity and tak­ing another step. Those who are car­ry­ing are required to take extra train­ing, includ­ing an inten­sive 3-day school designed train­ing pro­gram for deal­ing with active shooters.
