That will be addressed in the bill. As I said earlier, politics and personal opinions will not be elevated above protecting schools/kids.

Re: Let's Really Protect Our Schools

When I mentioned military veterans and former police officers, I was talking about a potential group of volunteers. I'm not going into details about the bill, but I'm not about to include unnecessary and problematic "eligibility" requirements to be exempt from the Private Security Act. The...

Re: Let's Really Protect Our Schools

So under the law now, for a teacher to carry in a school, they just need their LTC and permission from the school/district right? The school safety program is just an additional certification they can get if they or the school wanted or required them to have it, right? Correct, but if the person is...

Re: Let's Really Protect Our Schools

. . . Most districts will refuse such services, I imagine, BUT they won't be able to credibly say something can't be done outside of a constitutional convention or feel good/do nothing AWB legislation. That will be covered in the bill. Politics and/or personal opinions will not be elevated above pr...

Re: FL: Active shooter at high school in South Florida

. . . We stumble around, but its time we stop restricting firearms into government buildings. There is absolutely no reason to restrict the most law abiding citizens the right to protect themselves in the killing field known as "gunfree zones" We shouldn't require special training or extr...

No. You should check with DPS at the 60 day point.

Re: Trump health chief supports CDC research on gun violence

The CDC is not prohibited from researching "gun violence," in spite of what the Democrats claim. The prohibition on funding "gun research" applies only to the promotion of gun control.

I took the course at KR Training in December, 2017, and have my certificate. In addition to the other things I learned in the 18 hour course, I have shown I can achieve over 90% on the Texas LTC course of fire, pass the DPS Shooting Under Duress exercise, and pass the shooting course for a major Te...

Re: On-line Student Proficiency

As the DPS lady said during our recertification course, " about the only people who will benefit from the online courses are people who are 1) out of state; and 2) exempt from the range qualification. " I agree, primarily because of the overall cost to the student and because I don't see m...
