Really Protecting Students In Idaho

posted on June 8, 2015

While the so-called “mainstream” media goes berserk when anyone mentions a good guy with a gun stopping a bad guy with a gun, most Americans understand the concept and quietly support it. One Idaho school district is also now on board.

The Garden Valley School District—a small district in a remote area of Idaho—is so off the beaten path that it takes the nearest law enforcement personnel at least 45 minutes to reach the schools. Believing that to be inadequate, administrators recently purchased firearms and trained six employees to use them should there be an active shooter situation at district schools. 

"I hope we never have to use them," Alan Ward, a school board member who has been discussing this option with the school for two years, told the Associated Press. "But in the event something did happen, we wanted to be prepared."
