The news release that a Texas School District could be the first in the nation to allow teachers and staff to pack guns for protection was deemed so preposterous it received a prominent spot on the Nutty News Network.
But the story is legit – the Trustees at the Harrold Independent School District have approved a district policy that allows school employees to carry concealed firearms. And listening to Superintendent David Thweatt, the move is a necessary one to to deter and protect against school shootings.
“When the federal government started making schools gun-free zones, that’s when all of these shootings started,” stated Thweatt. “Why would you put it out there that a group of people can’t defend themselves? That’s like saying ‘sic ‘em’ to a dog.”
