A school district outside Dallas will reportedly continue to allow some teachers to carry guns in school, and posted signs on school campuses warning that teachers “may use whatever force is necessary to protect our students.”
NewFix’s CW33 reported that Argyle teachers will continue to be allowed to be armed on campus under the state’s Protection of Texas Children Act.
The report said these gun-toting teachers are required to have a handgun license, pass a psychological test and go through emergency response training.
“I trust that the administrators of this school district will put my kid’s best interest at heart,” one parent told the station.
The district policy was passed in January. Telena Wright, the district superintendent, said at the time that “armed staff answers the question. What about the first 1 to 2 minutes in [a] crisis situation where there’s an armed shooter? That seems to be a horrific situation that all schools across the nation are attempting to address,” The Denton Record-Chronicle reported.
