Sign at TX School: 'Teachers Armed, Can Use Any Force Necessary'



One Texas school district has unveiled a sign on school grounds warning that its teachers are armed.

“Please be aware that the staff at Argyle ISD are armed and may use whatever force is necessary to protect our students," the sign reads.

Seven states - Texas, South Dakota, Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas, Tennessee and Alabama - have passed legislation to make it legal for teachers to carry a gun following the Dec. 2012 Sandy Hook shooting.

Greg Coker, creator of the Shield 91 program that helps schools effectively arm teachers, talked to Brian Kilmeade this morning, explaining the process by which armed teachers are chosen.

Coker, a Special Ops veteran, says he is on a "crusade" to prevent another attack like Sandy Hook, which took the lives of 20 children and six adults.

He said the program is worth it if it can save even one life. Coker noted that most school shootings are carried out in about five minutes, but it usually takes police about 10 minutes to respond.

Coker said a properly trained individual can draw and fire in two seconds, adding that the goal is to delay the shooter's actions until law enforcement arrives.

You can watch the full discussion below.

What's your take on the school's policy? Do you feel your child is more or less safe with their teacher carrying a gun?

That is a LOT better than the usual sign

GUN FREE ZONE

Damn progressives are stupid. It seems to be that simple.

The last straw for sanity, who says a teacher won't go postal. The society now admits
it can't defend its own laws so it simply allows the people of the neighborhood to take
matters into their own hands

i fully agree, in that country, with the history they have.

its not all teachers, it is the teachers who have been properly trained by a professional,
and as he said, it fills in 'that' time needed before law enforcement have arrived.

these particular teachers would have been screened, they would have left out any teachers who
did not want to be involved, or any teachers who were far too eager to be involved.

i have faith in that decision, as he said, even if it saves one life., it is a whole lot better
than being sitting ducks, and could very well change the decision of a wacko shooter who was
going to enter the school to kill people, but then decides to go elsewhere.

Texan and an Albertan standing on the porch in the evening on a ranch in Texas. Texan says,' see that truck over there, I can get in at dawwn and drive all day and still not be at the other side of the ranch.' The Albertan says, we have vehichiles like that back home to but we usually tune them up before it gets that bad.' Same two taking a leak off a bridge, Texan looks over and says water's cold eh?', the Albertan says, 'Deep too.'.
The ones at the Alamo get my respect, as an rip tribute, is this at that stage already?
None of the 3 r's is meant to be 'rifling'

Trained by the kind of "professional" who puts a full-auto Uzi into the hands of a nine-year-old?

I hope not.
