Finally one school has taken matters into their own hands, regarding the protection of the kids on their campus.
The great thing about this is that parents are THRILLED the teachers are arming themselves.
This is how it should be. Get armed guards or armed educators.
They say don’t mess with Texas. You probably shouldn’t mess with its teachers either, at least in one school district.
The Medina Independent School District put up a sign last week at one of its entrances warning people that teachers and staff there may be armed.
“Please be aware that the staff at Medina ISD may be armed and will use whatever force is necessary to protect our students,” the sign reads.
School superintendent Penny White thinks the sign will be an excellent deterrent.
“I think that anybody who might have a thought about harming someone in mind might think twice about it,” White told CNN affiliate KSAT.
A lot of parents seem to be OK with the sign, citing the string of school shootings over the years.
“Schools have been a target for, for lack of a better word, crazy people, and I’m perfectly fine with it,” said Jillian Sides, who has two sons, one in 7th grade and one in kindergarten, at the school.
