Teachers in Pennsylvania could soon be armed.

The Pennsylvania Senate passed a bill that would allow teachers to carry firearms.

Approved by a 28 to 22 vote, the measure would give school districts the option of developing a policy to allow trained school personnel to carry firearms on school premises.

The bill requires school personnel to have firearms training and pass a psychological exam.

That legislation now goes to the house for consideration.

The house is not expected to consider it until after the summer break.
