Texas School District to Let Teachers Carry Guns

I couldn't pass up the opportunity to tell you about this news brief. While Daniels is attempting to pass legislation in Indiana protecting teachers from lawsuits while disciplining students, Reuters reports:

"A Texas school district will let teachers bring guns to class this fall, the district's superintendent said on Friday, in what experts said appeared to be a first in the United States.

The board of the small rural Harrold Independent School District unanimously approved the plan and parents have not objected, said the district's superintendent, David Thweatt.

School experts backed Thweatt's claim that Harrold, a system of about 110 students 150 miles northwest of Fort Worth, may be the first to let teachers bring guns to the classroom.

Thweatt said it is a matter of safety."
