    Here’s a Fox News article on the school district’s policy.

    While they are screeching and clutching their pearls over teachers and cops (which was Bill Clinton’s idea anyway) with pistols, they seem to be OK with National Guard troops with M-16s and M-4s. Or at least, they are OK with it when Barbara Boxer introduces it.

      From the link: “Boxer also introduced the School Safety Enhancement Act, which would increase funding for a federal grants program, from $30 million to $50 million, to help fund school security measures, such as installation of metal detectors and surveillance cameras.”

      Assuming 100,000 schools, that “generous” $50M is a grand total of $500 PER SCHOOL! $500 wouldn’t buy you half a day of any sort of consultant to come and look @ your school security, forget about paying for metal detectors, security camera or anything else.

    Mr. Thweatt was very intelligent and articulate about the reasons why more schools should consider having some teachers concealed carry. I wish more folks I work with in school would consider his way of thinking.

    Props to TTAG for posting this up!
