Ohio school teachers and staff can’t carry firearms on duty without extensive police training or 20 years of experience, the Ohio Supreme Court ruled.

In a 4-3 decision, the Ohio Supreme Court struck down a Madison Local School District policy that allowed up to 10 employees with concealed handgun licenses and training to carry weapons while in school.

The policy was enacted after four students were injured in a 2016 shooting at Madison Junior-Senior High School. Shortly after, a group of parents challenged the Butler County school district’s policy in court.
