Safest school district in Texas.
It’s a sign of the times in South Texas: welcome to the wild west!
The Medina Independent School District put up a sign warning parents and students the Medina faculty may be packing heat and not afraid to use it.
“I think that anybody who might have a thought about harming someone in mind would think twice about it,” Medina ISD superintendent Penny White suggested.
Jillian Sides, a mother of two Medina students, agreed. “I’m perfectly fine with it.”
“I think you’ve got to do whatever you’ve got to do,” Bandera County resident Genie Strickland said.
“I don’t have a problem with that at all,” Medina resident Rod Grunwald said. “That’s good.”
Officials say having faculty carry firearms is just being practical since they don’t have quick-response security nearby.
“We’re 20 minutes or 25 minutes from Bandera, and that’s our closest law enforcement,” White said.
