Holy .44 mag on the teacher’s desk – lol! “What did you say, kid? You didn’t get your homework done? You DIDN’T get your HOMEWORK DONE!?”
Lol – get a load of this fresh news. A school superintendent in Texas announced today that his school will now allow teachers to pack heat. Check the quote from this news article:
The board of the small rural Harrold Independent School District unanimously approved the plan and parents have not objected, said the district’s superintendent, David Thweatt.
“We have a lock-down situation, we have cameras, but the question we had to answer is, ‘What if somebody gets in? What are we going to do?” he said. “It’s just common sense.”
Board members estimate it would take first responders nearly 30 minutes to get to the rural school in an emergency.
Teachers who wish to bring guns will have to be certified to carry a concealed handgun in Texas and get crisis training and permission from school officials, he said.
Yowzer ka-chow-zer, I can see a pile of people throwing a hissy fit over this one – lol.
Of course, packing heat in school was actually quite common in Texas back in the day – BY THE STUDENTS! Check this 1923 El Paso High School yearbook picture of the girls’ rifle team – lol:
Hell, I can remember an old timer in Maine telling me that way back in the day it was nothing for all of the boys to bring their rifles to school during deer season. They’d come into school, set their rifles against the back wall, then all head to the woods after school like it was no big deal.
Where has society taken us since then?

BTW: Thanks to those of you purchasing the Congressional EMP report. Your support is much appreciated, and – if the Russians keep up their Soviet-era tactics – an EMP threat may become very real again.
