Guns in Alabama Schools. State Rep. Will Ainsworth of Guntersville — who’s running for Lt. Governor — says guns are need to protect kids. So he’ll introduce a bill to let some school staff members carry guns. This comes after that massacre at a Florida high school last week. Ainsworth said that a coach at the Florida school used his body as a shield and that he was also in charge of school security, but ouldn’t do anything. A similar bill has come up in Alabama before, but it did not pass.
