Medina – A Texas School, the Medina Independent School District, has put up a sign that is turning heads. It reads,
“Attention. Please be aware that the staff at Medina ISD may be armed and will use whatever force is necessary to protect our students.”
Texas, if you recall, recently passed a law which allows guns in the classrooms. The Medina ISD has embraced the new law with fervor, unlike the University system.
First Coast News reported,
Medina Independent School District superintendent Penny White told KENS 5 Friday the sign was installed this week in hopes that it might make anyone “think twice” who may be considering doing anything to harm the students.
White said she hopes the sign lets the public know that student safety is the school district’s number one priority, and so far, the public’s response has been overwhelmingly positive.
“I have not had one negative comment,” she said.
Reactions to the sign have generally been positive, at least from the post on Facebook. The Bandera Bulletin’s Facebook page posted a picture of the sign. The comments have been great- some of which are priceless.
“This needs to be posted at every school. We use armed guards to protect our money, but do nothing to protect our most precious resource, our children.”
“I love this idea.”
“May be” should be replaced with “armed to the teeth.”
“More guns in school!”
“Don’t mess with Texas, Baby.”
“Great! Wish more districts would take similar measures to protect their students.”
“The best offense is a good defense!”
“Each school should have this sign. No matter if u lock all doors and have one entrance or more security. Kids still take weapons and parents that want revenge on the childs other parent can still enter. If they enter and get shot they were warned. It will be there death before a child’s.”
Of course there were occasional liberals, like one who demanded that the schools figure out how to be “safe” before resorting to guns…?????? Good luck with that.
