I read about a couple of school districts in Texas, that allow their teachers to carry at school. There have been no issues.
We can carry in schools here if we have a CC license ... unless they are posted with the AG's signage. The school district we are in, they are NOT posted. Teachers could carry here and be OK ... legally (not a crime). Not sure how they would do as far as keeping their jobs if the school district knew about it, but .... if it's concealed... it's concealed.
The fact there are SO's in schools, says the sheep thought they were necessary for safety and protection, so why not the teachers as well ? Why did they draw the line there ?

he should move to utah :) get a CCP and it's all legal, in fact, it would be illegal to ask him not too, or to fire him for it.

Would a teacher caught carrying in that same district have received similar treatment?
Strive to always carry the gun you would carry on the "bad" side of town.
My carry philosophy is "Something is worth doing is worth doing right" not "Something is better than nothing".

If a person has a concealed handgun license, they should be allowed to carry everywhere. Posting a sign prohibiting handguns or not allowing law-abiding citizens to carry in certain places means one thing - criminals will be the only ones armed in those places. Hopefully, cases like this one will show the stupidity of prohibiting legally licensed people from carrying in certain locations. I've decided to get active in Texas to change the laws that prohibit us from carrying in certain places. If a company, school, or hospital wants to post a 30.06 sign, then they should also be required to provide armed guards and metal detectors at every entrance to their property. I also want the state to eliminate any exception to our concealed carry permit, such as polling places, sports venues and courts.

I don't like the gray area... so it's only illegal sometimes, or when they want it to be? Just remove the law, change it, or enforce it...

From the last paragraph in the article....
He does the community a service by carrying, he does the community a service by being a school superintendent who might be able to defend his students someday....
“He was in the wrong, and he should be punished,” Pitts said. “You don’t forget there’s a gun on your hip. I don’t carry my gun anywhere I’m not supposed to. His punishment needs to be more than a fine; he should also serve some community service.”
It could be worse!

I wish this way of thinking was more common.

I agree with the sentiment about Obama, but I am torn as to wether he should be punished for knowingly breaking the law, or commended for acting on his responsibility to protect the children that are his responsibility.

Edit: Nevermind, I forgot he had a permit, as long as it was issued by that state, I guess he is ok federally.

States can override the GFSZ.
The initial bill did not allow for that, and was struck down by the Supreme Court as being unconstitutional for violating the states 2A rights. So they made a minor change to the law and passed it alomost verbatim with a few new words.
