The proposed School Marshal plan would allow gun training for administrators on campuses so that they can carry a concealed weapon.
"I'm concerned about the bill or any mandates that requires sheriff's or police chiefs to do something that's not funded," said Fresno County Sheriff, Margaret Mims.
Sheriff Mims says a portion of the bill requires the identities of concealed weapon holders be kept a secret.
"Anytime there's a mandate that says you shall do something usually there's a dollar sign attached to it," said Sheriff Mims.
California Assemblyman, Tim Donnelly said this allows the designated school marshals to be protected from the public.
"That creates a force multiplier so now instead of having to have one in every classroom, you might have one on the campus but nobody knows it," said Assemblyman Donnelly.
Some people we spoke welcome the extra protection.
"Yeah, I definitely would as opposed to not having a weapon and just being in that
danger without any help what so ever," said Hoover High School student, Ryan Salas.
Christina Tozlian, a Fresno parent also agrees.
"If they could stop someone from hurting more children, I would...absolutely it wouldbe a good thing," said Tozlian.
Others don't think school faculty carrying guns is a good idea.
"If the teacher gets kind of like a false alarm and they over react, it might cause
a greater panic," said Hoover High School Student, Andrew Shannon.
"Their place is to teach our children, not carry a weapon," said Fresno Parent, James George.
Sheriff Mims said she would hope to see the school marshals not just have concealed weapons permits, but have proper reaction and technique training to go along with it.
