Texas School Sign Warns Of Armed Faculty

posted on August 26, 2016

Two years after making a plan to protect its schools with armed security, and nearly a year after allowing licensed employees to carry firearms, a Claude, Texas, school district has posted signs in front of schools warning that “staff is armed and may use whatever force necessary to protect our students,” the San Antonio Express-News reports.

With 354 students at its two schools, the district will allow its 68 employees, including 40 teachers, to carry firearms, provided that they have concealed handgun licenses and practice shooting monthly. 

If the signs don’t deter would-be attackers, maybe the schools’ employees can stop them. As Superintendent Jeff Byrd said, “If there were a perpetrator that entered our building, we would be able to hold off the building until the professionals got here.”
