Harrold Independent School District in (of course) Texas has OKed teachers and staff bringing firearms to school.

This festering stupidity begins and ends with David Thweatt (the district's superintendent), it seems, who offers up these statements as evidence of his own severe retardation:

He said the district's lone campus sits 500 feet from heavily trafficked U.S. 287, which could make it a target.

Right. Placement near a highway — not, mind you, an actual interstate — makes schools vulnerable to attack. Somehow. Maybe by deranged long-haul produce truckers?

The fact that it hasn't happened yet seems not to faze our man:

When the federal government started making schools gun-free zones, that's when all of these shootings started.

Which is actually an outright lie. Attacks on schools are considerably fewer now than they were in, say, the early 20th century — before schools were no-gun zones. And is anyone stupid enough to genuinely believe that a student bentt on violence won't actually end up using a staff member's piece to make it happen?
