Any teacher that doesn't want to go to the wall to protect the little kids under their care does NOT deserve to be in the classroom.
Lt Gov Dewhurst is exactly right. Except I'd make it a requirement to obtain a teaching license that one learns how to protect the kids using deadly force.
Dirty Dewhurst gets it right on Texas guns, teachers & public schools.
I teach in Texas and would definitely go for this program. As for all the hand wringing going on in the press over teachers having guns, I have a solution. Deputize any teacher who can pass a rigorous training regimen and allow them to carry weapons UN-concealed, along with a badge. Now, obviously these wouldn’t be regular sheriff’s deputies, since they wouldn’t have arrest powers nor could they detain anyone in a traffic stop. I think that this would have an immediate positive effect in schools.
The People of Texas are wonderful. This is what we need. To allow children to be the victims of a deranged kook is criminal. As usual the liberals try to blame objects rather than people. We cant have uniformed police. They will be singled out and killed first. We need well armed responsible faculty and administration. This will pass in Texas.
I noticed in today’s paper that a local gun shop is offering FREE concealed carry training to public school teachers.
