A bill allowing the state of Tennessee to arm some teachers and staff in public schools has been approved. In a vote in the House of Representatives, the bill was approved with 68 "yes" votes against 28 "no" votes. The bill, which was previously approved in the Tennessee Senate, requires the signature of State Governor Bill Lee to become law.

If the bill becomes law, some teachers and staff in public schools will be allowed to carry concealed weapons. However, in order to do so, the staff must have a permit to carry a gun, as well as the written approval of the school principal and local law enforcement. In addition to police and school administrators, parents and teachers who do not carry weapons would be prohibited from finding out who has weapons at school.

An armed attack took place on March 27 at the private Christian school "The Covenant" in Nashville, Tennessee, USA. Six people, including three children, were killed in the attack at the school, where approximately 200 students between kindergarten and 6th grade were receiving education. Following the attack, the disagreement between Republicans and Democrats, who are the majority in the State House of Representatives, over the gun law moved to the next level.
