Two weeks after a school gunman killed his vice principal and injured the principal, a state lawmaker is seeking to allow school administrators, teachers and security personnel to carry concealed handguns in school.

Under a bill introduced by Sen. Mark Christensen of Imperial on Tuesday, certain school staff and faculty certified under state law
to carry concealed guns could carry them in their schools. The bill
says allowing that would require approval of two-thirds of the school's board.

The bill comes two weeks after Omaha police say 17-year-old
Robert Butler Jr., a Millard South High School student, shot Vice
Principal Vicki Kaspar and Principal Curtis Case with his police
detective father's service weapon, then shot and killed himself.
Kaspar died; Case is recovering.
