Updated: Friday, December 21 2012, 04:59 PM EST
In the wake of the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, South Carolina lawmakers will consider a bill that would allow teachers and other school employees to carry a gun in schools.

The bill was filed in the State House Tuesday by Rep. Phillip Lowe. It would allow public school employees who has a concealed weapons permit to have a gun on school property as long as they are approved by the school board, and notify the school's principal in advance.

The employee cannot have a history of violence, must keep the weapon on their person and concealed at all times, and will have to regularly complete marksmanship training.Law Would Allow Guns in SC Schools
