After hearing fierce opposition from members of the OSI-supported Coalition to Reform School Discipline, including the student-led Baltimore Algebra Project and the ACLU of Maryland, the Baltimore City school voted unanimously to oppose HB31, a bill sponsored by Del. Cheryl Glenn (D, 45th District) that would have allowed school police to carry guns inside school buildings.
After the meeting, Glenn told the Baltimore Sun that she would withdraw the bill. “I can’t move a bill that doesn’t have the support of the school board and the mayor,” she said. “The votes wouldn’t be there.”
