Sign Outside Christian School: “Staff Is Armed And Trained”

A Christian school in Arkansas has the right idea and most common sense plan to combat school gun violence. The “common sense” ideas of the left have been to display “gun-free zone” signs on campus to somehow discourage murderers with nothing to lose from shooting up a bunch of people. It’s worked so well in the past. And, if it’s ever failed, it just means the “gun-free zone” campaign needs more money.

Arkansas Christian Academy in the city of Bryant has the opposite idea. Instead of advertising to the world that no guns are allowed, they have a sign that warns criminals that the staff is “armed and trained”:

“Staff members began receiving training and permits to carry weapons earlier this year, in response to the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn. Now, a sign outside Christian Academy stands as a warning to any would-be shooter. ‘Staff is armed and trained. Any attempt to harm children will be met with deadly force,’ reads the sign.”

If you were a criminal, what would scare you more? A sign that proudly proclaims that they have no guns anywhere on campus, or a sign that says school officials are packing heat? I know it’s a dumb question, but obviously a lot of people, a lot of schools don’t get it. Gun-free zones have made schools very dangerous places. But I bet this Christian school in Arkansas is one of the safest schools in America.

    Every school in our land should have this sign. It would be great to have as many teachers and office staff learn how to use a gun and have them handy anytime someone decides to hurt our children and even on our college campuses to keep them safe.
    Luke 22:36 Then said he unto them … he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. NOTE: Jesus did not tell His disciples to register their swords with the government.
    A recent study showed that, all inclusively, the USA is high on the list of nations with high rates of violent crimes, BUT, if cities that have the Strictest Gun Control laws, such as Washington DC, Chicago, Detroit & New Orleans (which are all also controlled by Democrats) are REMOVED from the calculations, then the USA comes in 4th from the BOTTOM of the list!

    I know a former Christian school principle. At a small school staff wear many hats. He assigned himself the job of security and kept a loaded .45 in his office, well hidden but handy, just in case. Good plan. I’ve heard that in Israel many teachers keep carbines handy in the classrooms and take them along on field trips. And they have few if any school shootings. We must remember what the NRA said, “The only solution to a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” If the police can’t get there in time to protect you, and they usually can’t, that leaves it up to us.

    LOL, I’m sure this school can expect a lawsuit from the school down the road that has a sign declaring it to be a “Gun Free Zone.” Why ? Because the bad guys will seek out the weakest point and attack it. The case will play out with this school being “the cause” of a massacre at the Gun Free Zone school. It’s never the perpetrators–it’s always some penumbral cause. Such is your American Left.
    It’s akin to a sign in the front yard of a gun owner declaring “My neighbors do not uphold the 2nd Amendment. I do. Therefore, I will NOT use my guns to come to their aid should you attack them.” Would he be held accountable for “causing” the death of a neighbor by declaring such ? Only in Leftist America.
