#4 It was unclear how many of the 50 or so teachers and staff members will be armed this fall because Thweatt did not disclose that information, to keep it from students or potential attackers.

"Unclear" is the way it should remain! Throws the bad guys off and also saves a lot on signs and bumper stickers.

Barkeeper, set another 'hat tip' round in honor of Texas!

#5 Two points:
1. USN Ret. this is a feature not a bug.
2. The Israeli version of a Galil over the shoulder seems to work too.

#8 My dear USN Ret I would NEVER think that you would not see this as a good thing.

Just trying to point out that I don't think this comes under the heading of "unintended" consequences. ;^)

#9 The state of Utah passed a law that allows students/faculty to carry concealed on campuses--it might have been after the Virginia Tech shootings. Utah seems to be doing fine.

#10 I seem to remember crime dropping off a bit in Utah after the State gave Gary Gilmore the Winchester cure.

#11 Expect some lib-heads to go ballistic over this....

How come we never read about a liberal having a stroke when exposed to the iniquity of conservatives?

#12 This happened in 2008. What a surprise that there has not been an incident in this district NOT!
