And while both Seagraves [, Texas] and Levelland [, Texas] credit the service and protection of area law enforcement, they say the policy is just another step forward.

"They could respond in minutes but we here can respond in seconds." says Kevin Spiller, Seagraves [, Texas] Superintendent.

Spiller says in the beginning, the community was given a survey that generated the public's opinion on the issue.

"The survey showed an overwhelming majority was in favor," Spiller says.

"The safety and well being of our students is one of our primary responsibilities."

Makes sense although I think students should also be allowed to defend themselves.

America is an intense country.

What a little shady and false-flag seeming event can do to a country...

Airport security, school security, public transport security, police in every range of a block..

Tight.

I never would have expected Texas of all places to step on peoples right to bear arms. When a person becomes a legal adult they have every right to carry if they wish. This is just more BS laws created by the man in a attempt to keep the people unarmed and therefore more easy to control.

I also don't believe that there should be a registry of any kind. If it works, it works.

We will see how it works in Kansas.

Don't forget that they just recently passed a law allowing concealed carry in Texas, too--another thing that surprised me was not an option before now.

Your wires are crossed. Concealed carry has been legal in Texas for many years now. You have to take a class be licensed to do so, but it's been here awhile now. Open carry is all the rage now. I guess if you want to look like a real "cowboy" ya need yer gun a showin' or some such. Works for me. now the criminals will know who to take out first.

The state in which I reside, Washington, is an open carry state. In my life the only time I witnessed a person open carry was traversing woods while fishing local rivers for steelhead. With the current political climate in my state, and the rise of the fanatical faction of the anti-gun agenda, a person that open carried in an urban setting might find themselves a victim of "swatting".

Yes, yes, I did get those wires crossed (I knew what I meant to write, just typed out "concealed" instead of "open" for pistols). Good catch.

I tend to think like you--I carry concealed because I don't want to be the obvious target by someone I can't see coming.

People seem to think this is he solution without considering the additional risks - knee-jerk "guns for everyone!!!!" bs.

I wonder what's going to happen when (not if) some other nutter walks in to start shooting. It would already be bad enough, but now you'll have bullets flying in all directions, by poorly trained teachers who will absolutely panic, putting more kids at risk of being shot.

I don't care how people want to try to spin this into a good plan, it's absolutely not.

Instead of having one person firing on hundreds, you're going to have several people all firing in different directions, not knowing who is firing where. Then the police will arrive, and who do they shoot? Do they spend an hour trying to work out who is a good guy and who is a shooter? Or do they put the lives of the kids first (as they profess they want to) and shoot EVERYONE with a gun?

If you reject this reality in favor of your pro-gun "arm everyone" simple-minded nonsense then there is something wrong with you.

Are you ok with armed police officers in schools?

What about teachers who have a concealed handgun license and extensive firearm instruction?

What about a history teacher who is a former infantry Marine with 3 tours in a combat zone?

I'm just trying to gauge if your rant was based on pure hoplophobia, Statism, or a combination of both.
