New bill in Texas legislature would allow teachers to shoot students



A bill introduced in the new Texas legislature would protect teachers who shoot and kill their students.

Teachers in Texas are already allowed to carry guns in classrooms. The intent of that law was to stop a deadly massacre like the one in Newtown, Conn.

Now, Rep. Dan Flynn, R-Van, filed H.B. 868 ódubbed the Teacherís Protection Act ó that would allow teachers to turn their guns on their students and not face prosecution. Not only would teachers be able to shoot a student to protect themselves or others, but also to protect school property.

The Association of Texas Professional Educators said it believes this should be determined at a local level. In other words, itís OK to kill students, but local school boards should give the green light, not the Legislature.

1. If I admit to mixed feelings, does it make me a bad person ?

I can sure sympathasize with wanting to shoot a student now and then.

2. thinking about it is one thing...

being able to actually do it with no legal repercussions is barbaric, sad, and psychotic.
