N.D. Senate Shoots Down Guns in School Measure

Posted: Updated:


North Dakota's Senate shot down a measure Thursday that would allow someone with a concealed weapon permit to carry a gun inside a school. 


But the Republican-led chamber did endorse a bill that would permit firearms in places of worship if church officials allow it and notify law enforcement.

The Senate also rejected a measure that would have allowed a concealed carry permit holder to have a gun at public gatherings.

Supporters of the gun-rights measures have said the aim was to create an efficient and cost-effective way to protect people at school, church and at public gatherings.

North Dakota's House endorsed the package of pro-gun measures earlier.
