In a year that has seen some of the deadliest mass shootings in recent memory, a school district in Bandera County, Texas, decided to take safety into their own hands. Medina ISD, a 303-student school in Texas, posted a sign out front warning potential intruders that teachers and staff could be packing.
A picture of the sign was posted by the Bandera Bulletin, and states: “ATTENTION: Please be aware that the staff at Medina ISA may be armed and will use whatever force is necessary to protect students.”
In an interview with KSAT in Texas, a local school board member stated that the sign was posted so that “anybody who might have a thought about harming someone in mind might think twice about it.”
According to the KSAT report, the school plans to place two more signs at the other entrances to the building. But for now — intruders, you have been warned.
