Idaho: Recall against Lake Pend Orielle School Board Chair over proposal to arm school staff makes the ballot

The recall of Lake Pend Oreille School District board chairman Steve Youngdahl has gotten the go ahead, with the handing in 125 signatures (99 were found valid). I previously thought that they needed 105, but I guess that was incorrect. The election is suppose to be scheduled for March 11.

Youngdahl proposed a plan to put guns in secure locations inside schools (with a fingerprint locking system), and training teachers, administrators and staff in using the gun. Petitioners cited Youngdahl's use of untrustworthy sources. Youngdahl used an article that has come under fire as being fundamentally flawed from the that claimed mass shootings stopped by armed civilians had less deaths than those stopped by police. I believe this is the article he cited.
