School District Will Use “Deadly Force” to Protect Students

Argyle, TX – When visitors enter the campus of a school in Argyle, Texas, they will be greeted by a sign, which warns, “Please be aware that the staff at Argyle ISD are armed and may use whatever force is necessary to protect our students.”

According to CBS Houston, the Argyle Independent School District approved the policy in January, choosing to “allow some teachers to act as the long arm of the law under the state’s Protection of Texas Children Act.”
The Protection of Texas Children Act was passed in May 2013. It permits the creation of school marshals, who carry concealed weapons and respond in emergency situations regarding active shooters.
