A tiny Texas school district will allow teachers and staff members to carry concealed firearms to deter and protect against school shootings when classes begin this month, provided the gun-toting employees follow certain requirements. The community, Harrold, is about 150 miles northwest of Fort Worth. Ken Trump, a school security expert in Cleveland who advises districts nationwide, said Harrold was the first district with such a policy. For employees 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 must use ammunition designed to minimize the risk of ricocheting bullets.

I think Mace or a Tasor Gun would be safer and more appropriate if they really feel the need to protect themselves and other pupils.
