North Texas school district considering a proposal allowing teachers to carry firearms on campus

One Texas school district is considering a proposal to allow certain teachers to carry firearms at school.

The superintendent of the Anna Independent School District in North Texas says teachers would have to get their concealed handgun licenses, undergo a psychological screening and participate in specific training.

Anna police would help with the process and allow use of their training simulator.

Police would also show teachers how to deal with active shooter and hostage situations.

It's a type of security some people say they'd be happy to see implemented.

"I'd rather have somebody there that's prepared to be able to take care of the situation than not," said Tami Boda, the parent of a student.

There's a meeting later this week for the public to weigh in on the plan.
