Oklahoma School Signs Warn: Teachers Are Armed and Will Use Force
In the gun friendly state of Oklahoma, one school isn't messing around when it comes to making criminals think twice.
In the town of Okay, school district officials have purchased signs that read, "Attention: Please be aware that certain staff members at Okay Public Schools can be legally armed and may use whatever force is necessary to protect our students." The signs are posted outside of schools for everyone to see.
More on the background for the signs from Muskogee Phoenix writer Harrison Grimwood:
The Okay Public Schools Board of Education passed an “Armed School Employees” policy in August. On Monday, the district publicized that policy with signage in front of the school.“The signs are more or less a deterrent,” Superintendent Charles McMahan said. “We don't want to be a soft target.”
