Kansas Schools Lose Insurance Over New Gun Law

A new Kansas law allowing gun owners to carry weapons in public buildings, including schools, has thrust a major insurer into the national gun control debate, USA Today reports.

"The EMC Insurance Cos. insures 85 percent to 90 percent of all Kansas school districts and has refused to renew coverage for schools that permit teachers and custodians to carry concealed firearms on their campuses under the new law, which took effect July 1. It's not a political decision, but a financial one based on the riskier climate it estimates would be created, the insurer said."
