    Texas School District Will Let Teachers Carry Guns

    A tiny Texas school district may be the first in the nation to pass a law specifically allowing teachers and staff to pack heat when classes begin later this month.

    Trustees at the Harrold Independent School District approved a district policy change last October so employees can carry concealed firearms to deter and protect against school shootings, provided the gun-toting teachers follow certain requirements.

    Superintendent David Thweatt told FOXNews.com the policy was initiated because of safety concerns.

    "We have had employees assaulted before by people in the last several years," Thweatt said. "I think that safety is big concern. We are seeing a lot of anger in society."

    He wouldn't comment further on the nature of the assaults.

    The Texas superintendent linked gun-free zones with the uprising of school shootings in recent years.

    "When you make schools gun-free zones, it's like inviting people to come in and take advantage," Thweatt told FOXNews.com.

    In order for teachers and staff to carry a pistol, they must have a Texas license to carry a concealed handgun; must be authorized to carry by the district; must receive training in crisis management and hostile situations and must use ammunition that is designed to minimize the risk of ricochet in school halls.

    they can't be serious, why not turn schools into prisons and teach like that?:qqb011: i mean really what does this say about us? or them?

    They used to do that back in the 60s. Bus drivers, people that worked in Diners, department stores...this ain't nothing new. I read where it was stated that in the month of June, Texas received over 52,000 new applications for a concealed handgun license. New, meaning people that never had their license before.

    I have a t-shirt that has two check boxes on it on the back. One of the check boxes says Victim and the other chack box says Gun Owner. On my t-shirt the Gun Owner box is checked.

    yeah heard this on the news the other day........sorta reminds me of that movie with samuel jackson, lol...........

    I feel that. I have always been against owning a gun, but with the way folks are breaking into people's homes while they're home, I'm starting to think that I need to take gun lessons.........

    question

    they used to do that in 1960's Texas?

    also you mentioned people in the 60's carried like bus drivers, people in diners
    but i think this is different these are the people teaching your kids
    in an closed in environment with other kids

    why not just have armed security or cops instead of the teachers carrying

    guns? that's all i saying. this is a "tiny school district" according the story
    could this be a precedent

    could this lead to larger school districts adopting this

    i don't think so but you never know

    My personal opinion is that it should be like back in the day when I was coming up.....teachers were allowed to eff you up if you acted up
