Permitting more guns on high school campuses increases dangers for both high school students and staff members alike. Having ready access to guns actually increases the risk of homicide. This puts over 37,000 students at risk. Gun violence disproportionately effects students of color. The KHSD is a racially diverse school district with some campuses having ethnic minority populations of 89% or more. This policy will increase liability costs. Increased liability will likely take general funds away from classroom instruction.
