PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Officials in the Pittsburgh Public Schools don't want teachers or staff carrying guns in school.

Board members are expected to pass a resolution tonight calling for sensible gun legislation instead.

The Post-Gazette reports the resolution also supports extensive background checks and more funding for student mental health and anti-bullying efforts.

President Trump and the NRA have suggested arming teachers as a way to protect students from mass shooting incidents.
