Bill Sponsored by Sen. Wise to Require an Armed Resource Officer at Kentucky Schools

State Senator Max Wise has sponsored a bill that would require an armed school resource officer in Kentucky’s schools if passed.

All school districts in Kentucky would have armed school resource officers under legislation unveiled Monday in the Kentucky Senate.

Wise, R-Campbellsville, said in a floor speech that the requirement for the officers to carry a gun was a major change in a comprehensive school safety bill that lawmakers approved last year but did not fund.
