Maryland State Law Forbids Officers Based in Schools From Carrying Guns

But Wiggins, speaking as a board member of the school police union, said a state law that that forbids officers based in schools to carry guns on campus could put students in danger.


Several students walked up to Baltimore school police officer Tiffany Wiggins Thursday morning with the same question.

What are we going to do if there’s a school shooting here?

It was a question that many students — and parents, teachers and administrators — were asking after a 19-year-old Florida man allegedly returned to his former high school and opened fire, killing at least 17 people.
