God bless Texas - the glue that holds this country together.
At last, some sense in a school setting!
The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.
I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.
David Thweatt, superintendent of the tiny Harrold school district in northwest Texas, believes his staff is ready.
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards

Being a high school teacher myself, many people underestimate the threats we take day in and day as we're forced to engage potentially violent/aggressive students... Who at a moments notice could snap or plan retaliatory acts etc.
Just last week i mistakenly told a student that he couldn't do some extra activity because he wasn't a senior.. He actually is a senior and i had mixed him up with another student. Anyway, he said something along the lines **** you or **** off and i piped up and told him he better watch his mouth etc. And i heard him say "are you checking me?" lol, needless to say he's known to hang around a rough crowd but there comes a time when you must engage them and remind them who's running the show :)
Wishyouwell, thank you for what you do.. it often goes unsaid, but you're shaping the future of America.. and you're underpaid and often unappreciated... so.. thank you. :)
Yes there is a lot of red tape. There's been times when i wish i could grab a few up but for the most part the kids in our program (welding/machining) are pretty decent kids. But, of course there's always the ones who fight you every step of the way and who think they make the rules.
I understand kids are going to be dropping the F bomb here and there, heck i do it my share, too. But when it's directed solely at me in an aggressive manner then there's going to be problems.
I applaud this school superintendent who has 'big ones'...

That school is doing it the way it should be done. The liberals will say the police will protect you, but they can only try to protect you if you are still alive after it is all over. otherwise they just have more reports to write.
Well done, we can only hope that more common sense kicks in to protect these children..
