'Gun free' no more

I've been waiting for this. After all, it's not like we can have undercover student cops, like we have air marshals flying among airplane passengers. We finally have a school district in the U.S. where teachers can carry firearms.
Trustees at the Harrold Independent School District approved a district policy change last October so employees can carry concealed firearms to deter and protect against school shootings, provided the gun-toting teachers follow certain requirements.

In order for teachers and staff to carry a pistol, they must have a Texas license to carry a concealed handgun; must be authorized to carry by the district; must receive training in crisis management and hostile situations and have to use ammunition that is designed to minimize the risk of ricochet in school halls.

Maybe it will also have the added effect of making kids pay attention in class.
