Teacher Facing Misdemeanor Gun Charge

KSAL StaffJune 16, 2013

A Wichita teacher is facing a misdemeanor charge for carrying a concealed handgun on school premises.

The Wichita Eagle reports 31-year-old Daniel C. Nagel was arrested May 20 at White Elementary in Wichita on suspicion of carrying a concealed gun on school property. District officials say Nagel is on paid administrative leave. His first appearance in Municipal Court is July 8.

Nagel’s lawyer Nicholas Means says Nagel has a state-issued concealed-carry permit.

Current state law, however, prevents anyone other than law enforcement officers from carrying a gun into a school if a sign banning guns is conspicuously posted.

The state Legislature passed a law this year that allows school districts to designate an employee to carry a gun. But the Wichita district hasn’t addressed the issue.
