LINCOLN — Teachers who obtain 24 hours of additional training could carry concealed handguns in schools under a bill introduced Tuesday in the Nebraska Legislature.
The bill would create a “level II” concealed carry permit that would require the holder to undergo training in addition to the roughly eight hours for a standard permit. The additional training would include best practices for active shooter situations, weapons retention methods and techniques related to barricading and evasion.
