The Israelis have permitted teachers and staff at primary schools to carry firearms for years in their schools, because they truly practice their policy that the kids' safety comes first. That decision is courtesy of the late Golda Meir, the forward thinking prime minister of that nation in the 1960s and 1970s.
The Texas school district that is taking this step follows in giant footsteps. Congratulations on the courage of forward thinking administrators who believe that the protection of childrens' lives is THE paramount responsibility of a school district.
"To deter and protect against school shootings, trustees have altered district policy to allow employees to carry concealed weapons if they have a state permit and permission from the administration. The 110-student district lies 150 miles northwest of Fort Worth on the eastern end of Wilbarger County, near the Oklahoma border.A smart thinker, this Superintendent Thweatt.
"Superintendent David Thweatt said a main concern was that the small community is a 30-minute drive from the sheriff’s office, leaving students and teachers without protection."
