Argyle’s on the right track

ARGYLE — It’s safe to say Argyle ISD is ready to start the school year with guns blazing. The district is on target to continue its new policy of allowing some teachers to pack heat on campus.

The posted sign on campus shoots straight, when it comes to the relatively new rule. It reads: “Please be aware that the staff at Argyle ISD are armed and may use whatever force is necessary to protect our students.” The signs are posted at all campuses within the district.

“I trust that the administrators of this school district will put my kid’s best interest at heart,” parent Lacey Fenoglio said.

Back in January, the district voted in favor of school marshals. Some Argyle teachers will act as the long arm of the law under the state’s Protection of Texas Children Act.

Gun-toting teachers must have and maintain a handgun license; pass a psychological evaluation; and undergo firearms and emergency response training.

    It’s a shame that our society as degenerated to the point that teachers must be armed to protect their students, but it HAS come down to this. Perhaps, we should invite God back into our schools, and pray to Him, and teach His Word. He would be better protection than any armed teacher. 🙂
