The position requires a Class A or B LTC. So they're armed by carrying low capacity firearms?

You missed the FID Part.....We all know by now this makes a background check easier in their small minds. Couple this with MGL CH22C/s.63
being used by a State School erroneously instead of CH 73/s.18 and CH15A/s.22
But then again, what the fuck do I know about SSPO?
