Guns at a Texas School?

This can't be good...

The school district in Harrold, TX has authorized teachers and staff members to carry concealed handguns if they meet proper requirements (authorized to carry by the state and the school district and properly trained).

Their argument is that the schools are about a 30 minute drive from the sheriff's office in the county, thus leaving the schools open to hostility because they are such a distance from the county sheriff.

My view: Putting guns in a school is a bad idea. Pretty simple.

This is the first school district in the country to invent such a policy.
