Teachers in Ohio will have an easier path to carry guns in classrooms after Gov. Mike DeWine signed a new law on Monday.

The law reduces the amount of training teachers must undergo before being allowed to carry a concealed weapon on campus. While current law requires teachers to take 700 hours of handgun training before being able to carry at school, the new law will allow teachers to be certified to carry in classrooms with less than 24 hours of training.

NBC reported armed teachers will be required to take eight hours of prequalification training every year in addition to lessons on how to stop an active shooter.
