Re: Hunt ISD teachers can now carry

Curious if any of these institutions have adopted a blanket policy of allowing all licensed staff to carry and how many require almost impossible hurdles to get “approval”.

Run (and win) for school board with a couple of your like-minded compatriots, and change the wording yourself to join the other 25 or so school districts that permit CHL carry. ;-)
Would be nice but it's a Charter District. No school board elections.

I wanted to be informed of the exact policy, and mainly I wanted to know if I could lock my firearm in my car while I was teaching, for convenience. I was surprised to see that according to district policy I could have my firearm in the car just as long as I did not bring it on the building premises (which specifically does not include parking lots, sidewalks, or areas outside the actual building). Then I went to my CHL class and the instructor blatantly told me that because I was a teacher I was absolutely NOT allowed to keep my gun in the car at school, but other adults who were not teachers could. I did not argue with him at the class, but I had the handbook pulled up right in front of me and read it over and over again, and it definitely contradicted what he said.

So, I went to our school police and asked them. After enthusiastically congratulating me on my CHL, they also pulled up the handbook and told me *I* was correct, and that it was plain as day in writing that I could lock my firearm in my car in the school parking lot. They told me of course to make sure that it was secured, and not to advertise that it was there (duh), but they were very amenable to the idea and very helpful.

So now, if I need to run errands after school, I have my firearm in the car and I can put it on to run my errands without having to go home first. :mrgreen:

I've got that. I'm afraid to clean my guns with Hoppe supplies. :-)

SIA
That's why I use Gibbs Brand Lubricant on my guns. It doesn't smell like your regular gun solvents, it smells more like cognac. That way people just think I am a drunk, not a CHL holder. :mrgreen:
I also use Gibbs. I think I've sold a few bottles for them too.
