If educators are really serious about “protecting the children” they can take a chapter from this private school’s book. They aren’t waiting for the next massacre to happen and protect themselves with bullet proof erasers and whistles. They are arming their staff and they don’t have to apologize for it.
NWA homepage reported that Arkansas Christian Academy in Bryant, AR, has this sign posted out in front of their school. And it is receiving national attention .
The sign reads, “Staff is armed and trained. Any attempt to harm children will be met with deadly force.”
Now do you really think a sign that reads “Gun-free zone” is going to be more effective than arming the staff and letting the bad guys know about it? I don’t think so.
Pastor Black already has 5 armed security personnel during his church services, and so it made sense for him to also utilize security measures for his Christian school as well.
“I just felt like with what’s going on in many of the public sectors where there seems to be a lot of shootings we need to take the same stance that we do in church on Sunday for our kids Monday through Friday,” says Pastor Perry Black.
With 1 to 7 staff being armed on any given day, this school is actually DOING something to protect the kids they teach, rather than pandering to delusional gun control enthusiasts who don’t understand how the world really works.
Pastor Black has said that the parents are all on board with the school’s efforts. Since the beginning 2013, the school has been training the staff not only how to use firearms but how to handle different situations where the children’s lives are in danger.
Those who say the teacher’s job should be to teach and not to handle security should think about how fire drills are performed. A teacher is not a fireman either, but if the school is on fire, and the firehouse is minutes away, a teacher steps in to protect the students.
And if you are wondering if the teachers are being trained properly, here is what the pastor said:
“We have the same law enforcement officers that have helped us through training and helped us through our concealed carry permits,”
What do you think about this sign? Think more school should have armed staff? Let us know in comments below.
