See, they told you it was a good idea to arm school teachers —
The Tyler Morning Telegraph has learned that a Van Independent School District employee accidentally was shot during a district-sponsored concealed handgun license class on Wednesday.The class was part of an effort to permit teachers to carry firearms on VISD campuses.Leslie Goode, a Van ISD school board member, confirmed that “there was an accident involving one of the employees today.”
Goode would not disclose the identity of the employee or the nature of the injury, but did say the accident would not change his mind about a recent decision by the board to arm some teachers.
Well hell yes, we’re just gonna start shooting each other but dammit we are not gonna stop because somebody might come from outside and shoot us. We’d rather shoot each other. It more fun that way.
The employee was a maintenance worker. He is in the hospital in fair condition.
The same teacher who accidentally shot him will be in the classroom, armed, with Texas children. I bet that makes Rick Perry plenty happy.
Thanks to a mess of people for the heads up.
