    insurance companies getting political

    Several insurance companies (EMC, Continental Western, & Wright Specialty Ins. - which claim to cover 85-90% of all schools in KS) say that they will not insure any school which follows new KS law & allows staff to be armed.

    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
    "It's one thing to have a trained peace officer with a gun in school; it's a completely different situation when you have a custodian or a teacher with a gun," Skow* said. "That changes the risk of insuring a school and magnifies it considerably."
    Insurers simply don't know how to price the added risk yet, he said, but they know it's there.
    * chief executive officer of the Independent Insurance Agents of Iowa
    I suggest that interested KS school districts contact any UT school district to find out which insurance companies are reasonable, then take their money away from the current anti-rights companies.
