MADISON — Pledging to keep its students safe, the Germantown School Board last week passed a resolution calling on Gov. Tony Evers and the Legislature to help districts provide more security options — including changing the state’s concealed carry law to allow license holders to possess a firearm on school grounds.
State Rep. Dan Knodl, a Republican from Germantown, says he would be happy to lead the legislation to help better secure Wisconsin’s schools, but he fears Evers, beholden to the gun-control lobby, would veto any bill giving schools the right to opt out of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990.
The resolution came at the request of school board member Bob Soderberg, who said more security steps must be considered to “ensure our kids and teachers go home safe.”
