13 School Districts in Arkansas had been using to employ teachers, administrators and staff as armed security guards

The Arkansas Board of Private Investigators and Private Security Agencies will hopefully receive some feedback from the citizens of Arkansas regarding their meeting today (501-618-8600).  From Fox News:
A state board is to consider whether to permanently revoke licenses that some Arkansas school districts had been using to employ teachers, administrators and staff as armed security guards. 
The Arkansas Board of Private Investigators and Private Security Agencies on Wednesday is scheduled to review the licenses that had been issued to 13 school districts classifying them as private security firms.  
The panel in August had suspended the licenses after a legal opinion was issued by the state's attorney general that the schools could not use the licensing law to arm staff. . . .

And heaven forbid that unpaid volunteers (e.g., parents, local firearms instructors, retired police) undertake these duties. I find it ironic that so many people seem to believe that sound judgement and competence with firearms are limited to those paid and licensed by some governmental agency, while simultaneously criticizing police and the military otherwise.
