Some push concealed-carry for Arlington teachers

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Two National Rifle Association members say they want the Arlington school district to allow teachers and administrators to carry concealed weapons.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports (http://bit.ly/TlidWq ) that David McElwee and Bill Sandlin tried to push a similar proposal a year ago and were unsuccessful. After the school massacre in Connecticut that left 20 children dead, McElwee says they will try again.

But school board president Peter Baron says he doesn't support the idea.

Baron says McElwee is "welcome to come and say his piece, as is any citizen," but doesn't expect the board to be swayed. He says the board is reviewing security in the wake of the shooting.

A district spokeswoman says Arlington police keep officers at junior and senior high schools.

Arlington is east of Fort Worth.
