Texas school district allows guns in school

Quote:
HOUSTON (Reuters) - A Texas school district will let teachers bring guns to class this fall, the district's superintendent said on Friday, in what experts said appeared to be a first in the United States.

The board of the small rural Harrold Independent School District unanimously approved the plan and parents have not objected, said the district's superintendent, David Thweatt.

School experts backed Thweatt's claim that Harrold, a system of about 110 students 150 miles northwest of Fort Worth, may be the first to let teachers bring guns to the classroom.

Thweatt said it is a matter of safety.

"We have a lock-down situation, we have cameras, but the question we had to answer is, 'What if somebody gets in? What are we going to do?" he said. "It's just common sense."

Teachers who wish to bring guns will have to be certified to carry a concealed handgun in Texas and get crisis training and permission from school officials, he said.

Recent school shootings in the United States have prompted some calls for school officials to allow students and teachers to carry legally concealed weapons into classrooms.

The U.S. Congress once barred guns at schools nationwide, but the U.S. Supreme Court struck the law down, although state and local communities could adopt their own laws. Texas bars guns at schools without the school's permission.
From what I've experienced, it's not uncommon for students to steal things from teachers' desk, cabinets, or other compartments. They're usually answer keys or confiscated items, but they might find something a little different this time.

The line that makes me wonder though is:

lol texas.

I don't really think the school is being stupid, but rather desperate after being ignored. It didnt mention it in this article, but I think I heard that the closest police station is 30 minutes away. With that in mind, it's really understandable that they would resort to this.

Tch. Sounds pretty sketchy to me. Have a feeling this will end up badly somehow.

I see a teacher being disarmed and the gun used against them...

Well, you get a free gun with every purchase of Jack Daniels. "It's Texas State Law!" I'm actually eager to here about this situation going bad.

The thing that will blow my mind is if it's actually a success somehow.

Every kid will have one then. Sounds fun.

About whether it goes wrong or not... I would rather than when it does go bad, that it's just a minor incident rather than another Columbine or Virginia Tech.

I agree, mainly cause they'd blame videogames and rock n roll.
