Superintendent Defends Texas Town's Policy Allowing Teachers To Carry Concealed Guns

“What seemed to me to be a problem … is that we basically left our schools open to attack — This is like putting a sign in front of your house that says ‘I really think that it’s a good idea to come and attack me because I don’t believe in guns’ — and that’s exactly what we were trying to avoid,” David Thweatt, Superintendent of Harrold district schools in Texas, said on FOX News this morning.

In 2007, according to FOX News, the Harrold, Texas school district made the decision to allow teachers to carry concealed guns at school to protect their students against potential violence. In the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting, and amid new calls for gun control, that district’s methods are getting a closer look.
