BACK TO SCHOOL THE TEXAS WAY

Back in January, the district voted in favor of school marshals. Some Argyle teachers will act as the long arm of the law under the state’s Protection of Texas Children Act.

Gun-toting teachers must have and maintain a handgun license; pass a psychological evaluation; and undergo firearms and emergency response training.

Some parents say the district is right on target.

“I think if a tragedy does occur, lives can be saved by guns being in the right hands, and I think the teachers here might be able to stop something like that and life can be saved,” parent Lacey Fenoglio said.

Argyle ISD Superintendent, Dr. Telena Wright tells NewsFix continuous training is required, and some training even took place over summer break. However, the names and number of pistol-packing teachers will not be released for safety reasons.

Seven states – Texas, South Dakota, Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas, Tennessee and Alabama – have passed legislation to make it legal for teachers to carry a gun following the Dec. 2012 Sandy Hook shooting.

Greg Coker, creator of the Shield 91 program that helps schools effectively arm teachers, talked to Brian Kilmeade this morning, explaining the process by which armed teachers are chosen.

Coker, a Special Ops veteran, says he is on a “crusade” to prevent another attack like Sandy Hook, which took the lives of 20 children and six adults.

He said the program is worth it if it can save even one life. Coker noted that most school shootings are carried out in about five minutes, but it usually takes police about 10 minutes to respond.

Coker said a properly trained individual can draw and fire in two seconds, adding that the goal is to delay the shooter’s actions until law enforcement arrives.

    Can you imagine just how bad the libtard, anti-gun crowd must be foaming at the mouth over this? Here they thought they had us by the balls and were going to outlaw guns after Sandy Hook and instead schools are beginning to arm themselves instead of becoming killing fields!

    I try not to follow the tin foil hat crowd too much but something…..lots of things…..don’t add up there.

    The best way to protect students in public schools is to remove them. That way they will not only not be targets of an intruder but will not be victims of the system. Public schools are captives of communist boomers and are extremely dangerous places for your children. They kill your children in so many more ways than just shooting them,

    I agree with OverTheCliff – government schools are nothing more than a dumb-down, liberal brainwash industry.

    What else isn’t reported by the media is that many of these shooters are on anti-depressants – the very ones that warn about suicidal behavior.

    Who wouldn’t hate these mind / behavior / creativity killing government schools? I’m surprised that someone doesn’t light’em up, at least once a week.

    Betcha no fuck-tards will try the school shooting routine at these schools where the teachers, etc. are packing. Takes away all the “fun” of blowing away the unarmed.
    And regarding SH, just HOW many Newtown houses transfered for zero dollars on 12/25 and how is that even possible?
