“with deadly force if necessary”

A little tiny school in remote west Texas.
This is posted on their high school football stadium.
Friday Night Lights indeed!
[Note: This sign is at Ft. Davis (TX) High School]

I live in w Texas and you better believe we’re armed and ready
It beats all those signs that essentially put targets on the backs of school children, mall shopper, and movie-goers.
We have seen that “Gun-Free Zone” gets fairly readily translated in the minds of malefactors to “Target Rich Environment.”
I bet no one messes with that school – more than once. #2A
Nothing to see here folks. Just move along. A concealed firearm is an inanimate object. Much like a fire extinguisher, a first aid kit, a sharp kitchen knife, an oven mitt, a spare tire, a credit card; etc, etc. We teach kids about driving drugged or drunk, to stay away from strangers, playing in traffic, riding bikes with out helmets, proper use of condoms; etc, etc. The question that should be asked is why do school boards across the country continue to resist the implementation of the “Eddie Eagle” program provided by the National Rifle Association that is designed to teach and familerize young children with firearms?
When I was a kid, I took a gun safety course at my high school. I can’t remember if some organization/club at the school sponsored it or if some civic organization I was part of outside of school like Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts or 4-H sponsored it, or if it was maybe a youth outreach thing sponsored by the NRA or Ducks Unlimited that my dad belonged to. I can’t remember who sponsored it, but it was definitely held on school grounds. That much I remember.
Now schools suspend kids from school if they chew Pop Tarts into what a deranged adult thinks may resemble a pistol.
I was part of a high school rifle team that practiced on campus, and competed with teams from all over Texas.
That was commonplace, even in Nuevo Ork City.
When I was in elementary school, we had an NRA sponsored range in the basement of the school. 6 lanes. We reeled in the targets by pulling on ropes so as to score them. On range days, I carried into the school as classes were about to begin my Win Model 52 with ammo in my jacket pockets. Put em both in the “cloak room” during school hours and then, slung over my shoulder as classes let out, down into the basement for training. I was 9 years old at the time. LOL LOL LOL LOL Where have all the “good times gone?”
I live just down the road from the first school in Texas to adopt the policy; kids love it, parents love it, teachers love it. I teach all ages youth shooting sports (archery, rifle, pistol, shotgun, blackpowder and hunting/wildlife) and can’t say enough about how much support we get from the school district for our competitive teams.
They don’t just resist Eddie Eagle. They also loudly protest against any attempts to legalize possession of weapons by licensed non-LEO on school grounds.
I’d bet for most liberals reading that sign, the last two words wouldn’t even register in their minds.
Hell, a lot of them would never get past the graphic at the top!
The graphic alone would violate many schools’ zero tolerance policy.
Full-tilt rolling cat fit…!!!
One of my first thoughts was that the graphic needed to cover about half the sign.
For all the illiterates who wouldn’t even try to read the sign, in the first place.
OR replace the verbiage with…
If you kill someone in Texas, we kill you BACK!
(A great statement by a country comic I can’t recall).
Daniel Craig as James Bond said it best in “Skyfall”:
“Some men are coming to kill us. We’re going to kill them first.”
Finally, a sign that serves and protects.
Show this to the mindless Leftists.
Panel ruled schools can arm staff and teachers…
Throughout Texas, the greatest threat to students is the school system itself.
Which is why Texas schools are both safer and better than CA.
the sign frightens me.
as a latent SJW I must sue people to get it removed so the words stop scaring me.
although I expect to see stuff like that soon from these pu$sies now its getting exposure.
One of these should be posted at every entrance to every school in the US.
Even if it’s not true, the signs could still serve as a deterrent. How could there be any opposition to such decoy signs – if they save just one life and all that? But even acknowledging the potential deterrent effect of the possible presence of defensive firearms would be enough to send the opposition into a tizzy; this is something that just can’t be admitted.
Nice, but still too PC. I’d prefer
“If you try to hurt these children we will kill you.”
