Revisions for Clarity and Consistency

744.2607 Are firearms or other weapons allowed at my child-care center?

Certain persons who are trained and certified to carry a firearm on duty may carry a loaded firearm in a child-care center. This rule has been amended to clarify who may carry a loaded firearm in a child-care center by:

• replacing the informal term of "law enforcement official" with "peace officer", which is defined at 2.12, Code of Criminal Procedure; and

• specifying that commissioned security officers are persons who may carry a firearm on the premises of a child-care center.

744.2609 May I have other toys or equipment that explodes or shoots things?

This rule has been amended to clarify the language of the rule for better readability and ease of understanding and to specify that this rule also applies to field trips.
