Uncommon Sense in a Texas Children's Prison District

Dozens, nay hundreds of children, teachers and bystanders have been killed, actually by crazed murderers, but with anti-gun, anti-self defense politicians as accessories before the fact. It might even be said that these self-same politicians are accessories after the fact as well, for their attempts to minimize punishments for these psychos. Now, there seems to be a small island of sanity in the northern plains of Texas.

According to a story on the Chron.com web page, a small school district in North Texas--Harrold, Texas--has adopted a policy of allowing school teachers and staff to carry concealed firearms in classrooms, the better to help protect the inmates, should one of these demented individuals decide to pick one of their campi to make his final stand.

There will be a small number of qualifications staff must pass in order to carry on campus, but they should be fairly easy for anyone to satisfy. Unless he is one of the aforementioned psychos.

Here's hoping this tiny ray of intelligence can be multiplied before any more schools, churches, shopping centers and restaurants become shooting galleries.

Gun free zones are free fire zones.

How did I know this story would show up on your blog?

Just a lucky guess, I suppose.

Heard about this the other day, all i gotta say is, if i were living in that area, i'd send my kids to that school. As a side-benefit, those who'll be carrying will also have the wisdom to teach my children about real responsibility and freedom, not the kind where you whine at the state to give you something, that too many are learning these days.

I do see this as a positive step that I hope spreads, though I still detest the notion of government children's prisons.
