A Howard Fischer article posted within the hour talks about our Education Superintendent's attitudes toward guns.
As a legislator, Huppenthal voted repeatedly to expand the number of places where individuals can carry weapons.
That includes both bars as well as college and university campuses. The first measure became law; the second one has not — at least not yet.
But Huppenthal would not say whether he believes, as some legislators have suggested, that staff at public schools should also be permitted to carry weapons to be ready for this kind of situation.
"Those kind of discussions are inappropriate at this time,'' Huppenthal said.
