Missouri’s Safe School’s Act today got a booster shot. Governor Carnahan signed a bill (SB 944) tacking on new measures to the 1996 legislation. The bill expands gun-free zones to school busses and after-school activities. It also lays down heavier penalties for things like bomb threats. It increases reporting requirements to police, even provides some funding for suicide prevention programs. House sponsor Phil Smith says it takes care of some things they didn’t foresee 4 years ago.
