A small Texas county with only 1,200 students is moving to allow teachers to carry firearms. The Grand Saline Independent School District is allowing teachers to concealed carry firearms.
This plan didn’t just pop up out of nowhere either. The district held discussions and plans to enact this for 3 years prior to approval. 300 other districts in Texas allow their teachers to carry in some capacity. Superintendent Micah Lewis said that 95% of residents in the district support arming teachers.
The teachers will have to go through screening and training before they are approved. Each applicant will have to pass a 40 hour course. Teachers will also have to renew their certification and take subsequent courses and trainings.
Schools need to be a safe space for children to learn and grow. Since 2018, there have been 103 school shootings, and 34 just last year. A teacher having to shoot an armed student is a hard pill to swallow. A room full of unprotected children falling victim to a violent attacker is a far more horrifying prospect. At least in Grand Saline, teachers will be trained, armed, and prepared to protect our nation’s future.

I AM ALL IN FAVOR OF TRAINED TEACHERS AND OTHER SCHOOL PERSONNEL BEING AUTHORIZED TO CONCEAL CARRY. FAR TOO MANY SCHOOL KIDS AND TEACHERS HAVE BEEN HURT OR KILLED BY MONSTERS OUT TO DO HARM. AS A VETERAN, I KNOW THAT TRAINED PERSONNEL CAN AND WILL PREVENT THE CARNAGE THAT IS BEING DONE BY “NO GUNS” RULES.
If Texas keeps this up, all the conservatives in the country will move there and Texas will fill up, while the rest of country empties out. The big libtard cities will be the only place outside Texas you will be able to find anyone. But who would want to find them anyway?
Good for them
Every school district in the US should learn from this and allow their teachers to a similar course and carry on campus.
