There's only three things in Texas: Steers, Queers, and Teachers with Guns. I also assume it is now well within the teachers judgment for when they feel the need to shoot a child. I'll bet a parent would love to get the phone call: "I'm sorry, your son became disruptive in class so I put a bullet through his chest. I hope you understand." Do guns prevent violence or encourage and facilitate it? And what's going to happen when a student is able to get control of one of these firearms? This just has bad idea written all over it. But again, Texas is really taking it up a notch this school year in terms of ridiculous policies.
