Monday Madness

Let's see, what can we talk about today. Oh, I know let's talk about carrying concealed weapons.

To further that, let's talk about carrying a concealed weapon to school. Naturally it is a Texas school, where else.

And just who is carrying these weapons (guns), why of course, the teachers.

The school is located in what must be the rather small town of Harrold, Texas on the Okalahoma border. The total enrollment at the K-12 school is 110 students.

The decision to arm teachers was made after two years of research to determine the best security options for the school according to David Thweatt, school superintendent, even though all students are locked in for the day and security camera's apparently cover the entire school.

Yes, there have been school shootings, way too many. But having teachers, who I thought were trained as educators, also become armed guards may just be a little much.

Maybe they are worried about invaders from Oklahoma. And the way some kids act these day, who knows, maybe the teachers just wanted the option to shoot first and ask questions later.
